CelebNSports247.com reports that 43-year-old was at Dial Bar and Lounge in Santo Domingo when a gunman burst into the place and opened fire, striking Ortiz once.
Boston Red Socks retired star David Ortiz was immediately rushed to a nearby hospital for treatment. His condition is unknown at this point. The shooting is senseless as a man walked up behind Ortiz and just gunned Big Papi down.
Ortiz’s father, Leo Ortiz, confirmed the incident to ESPN, saying:
They called to tell me that David is injured and that they took him to a medical center, but they did not tell me how he is or exactly where he was transferred.
The suspect has reportedly been arrested.
Ortiz was a 10-time All-Star during his pro baseball career and his #34 jersey has already been retired by the Sox.
