Ortiz undergoes second surgery after shooting, says wife

David Ortiz

Shortly after he was shot, Ortiz was taken to Abel Gonzalez Center for Advanced Medicine in Santo Domingo, where he underwent his first surgery.

"Our medical team here in Boston and the doctors in the Dominican Republic have confirmed that David's condition is serious, but that he is stable enough to be transported back to Boston for continued care", said Kennedy. He was stabilized and then flown to Boston and taken by ambulance, with police escort, to Massachusetts General Hospital.

The former Boston Red Sox player is now awake and in "stable" condition, his wife Tiffany Ortiz said in a statement issued through the Red Sox.

Ortiz is one of the most beloved figures in sports history in the Dominican Republic and Boston, a fearsome power hitter with a ready smile.

Tiffany did not speak on that.

Lopez said Ortiz underwent six hours of surgery.

The motorcycle driver has been identified as Eddy Feliz Garcia, who on Tuesday evening was charged with attempted homicide and criminal association, according to his lawyer, Bunel Ramirez Meran.

Authorities in Santo Domingo offered few concrete details of their investigation into the shooting, but Dominican Attorney General Jean Rodriguez said in a statement the investigation had "advanced considerably", and that the results would be released "in a timely manner".

Two other people were wounded, including Jhoel López, a Dominican TV host who was with Ortiz.

Greenwood said it was never intended for release and was "only tangentially interesting". A note from Yorke on the Bandcamp page says: 'We've been hacked .

Police Capt. Luis Manuel Pimentel told CNN that authorities meant to question Ortiz, but had not been able to yet. Ortiz also sustained liver damage, Lopez added.

"I want to thank everyone for the outpouring of support and love that we have received during this incredibly hard time", Tiffany Ortiz's statement said.

Francona said he spoke on Tuesday with one of the doctors who is treating Ortiz.

Three law enforcement sources told the Daily Mail that investigators believe two men - allegedly police officers - were hired by a drug lord to kill Ortiz because the drug lord believed Ortiz was having an affair with his wife.

Former Red Sox teammate Pedro Martinez called Ortiz a "strong man".

Ortiz is expected to remain in the ICU "for the next several days".

The news of the shooting brought an outpouring of support on social media Monday morning, many of them remembering the role Ortiz played in helping the city to recover from the Boston Marathon bombing in 2013.

He helped Boston capture their first World Series title in 86 years in 2004, when he was the MVP of the American League Championship Series.
