Default David "Big Pappy" Ortiz Shot in Dominican Republic

Per the report, Ortiz was shot at a the Dial Bar and Lounge in Santo Domingo, and transported to a local hospital. A suspect has been arrested, according to Dominican journalist Dionisio Soldevila, and was reportedly attacked by bystanders before being taken into custody.

Ortiz was shot in the lower back, and the bullet exited through his stomach, according to ESPN. The 43-year-old is currently in surgery, and reportedly told the emergency room doctor: “Please don’t let me die, I’m a good man.”

According to Soldevilla, Ortiz is currently in stable condition despite still being in surgery, which is expected to take another hour.

I pray he has a full and speedy recovery. Why do they target these guys down there? I would have to think he's a national hero down there. Do they just target these guys out of jealousy? I don't think it was a robbery or anything like that.

Was it a robbery? I think the article said he was sitting in a busy bar and someone shot him in the back. I guess it could have been a botched robbery.
