Ortiz was ambushed by two men while outside a club in the Dominican capital of Santo Domingo on June 9.

"The constitution provides for the right of any person to challenge the lawfulness of his or her detention in court, and the government generally observed this requirement", the State Department said in a 2018 human rights report. Officials believe Lopez was injured by the same bullet that entered Ortiz, National Police Director Ney Aldrin Bautista Almonte said, according to the Boston Herald.

Tiffany also thanked the Red Sox for their help in getting her husband to Massachusetts General and asked for privacy as he continues to recover.

Ortiz is now recovering from exploratory surgery in Boston, where he was flown Monday night by the Red Sox.

"David Ortiz is probably the most beloved and one of the most important players in our history, leading us to multiple World Series championships, and an active member in the community", said Red Sox team president Sam Kennedy during a news conference on Monday.

"He is resting", the elder Ortiz said.

On Sunday night, sports fans were shocked to learn that Boston Red Sox great David Ortiz was shot and wounded in his native Dominican Republic.

Ortiz, who starred for the Boston Red Sox for 14 seasons before retiring in 2016, underwent surgery at the Abel Gonzalez clinic. Doctors removed parts of his intestines and liver and his entire gallbladder.

"That collaboration with Dominican journalists, and well as Enrique's close relationship with David's father, Leo Ortiz, has been essential to our reporting". "I'm a good man".

"I was driving fast".

"I'm sorry, but it hurts me".

"I'm so disappointed to know that someone like David, who has saved so many lives, can have someone after his life", Martinez said, before being overcome with emotion. He also apologized for hitting several cars while rushing to the hospital: "That wrongdoing was justified". He first underwent surgery at a hospital in the Dominican Republic, where "Big Papi" was born and raised.

"If we had known that there was a unsafe situation, he would not have been there at that moment", López added.

Here are the details of the second suspect being arrested.
