It has been 10 days since David Ortiz sustained a gunshot wound at Dial Bar and Lounge in Santo Domingo. The investigation has been fluid, but prosecutors held a press conference on Wednesday, sharing more information on the case.
Attorney General Jean Alain Rodríguez told reporters that the Boston Red Sox legend was not the target of the June 9 shooting, adding that it was Sixto David Fernandez, another individual at his table.
Rodriguez added that Victor Hugo Gomez, a member of the “Gulf Cartel, was behind the attack.
Ortiz’s condition was upgraded to “good” on Tuesday, per a statement from his wife, Tiffany. He continues to recover at Massachusetts General Hospital.
11 suspects had been arrested as of Tuesday afternoon.
