The gunman suspected of shooting David Ortiz at a bar in the Dominican Republic on Sunday night was arrested Wednesday as part of a group authorities said were offered $400,000 Dominican pesos, or about $7,800 US dollars, for a coordinated hit on the former Red Sox player, according to NBC News. There is no public indication the man is the suspected shooter. She declined to provide further details. Ortiz was immediately brought to a hospital in the DR where he received surgery that involved parts of his organs being removed. "He is stable, awake, and resting comfortably this morning in the ICU where he is expected to remain for the next several days", the statement reads.

Surgeons in the Dominican Republic operated for six hours to fix his wounds before Ortiz, who ended his 20-year Major League Baseball career in 2016, was flown to Boston once he was in a stable condition on Monday before having further surgery.

"I am so disappointed to know that someone like David who saved so many lives can have someone after his life", he said.

The Dominican Republic is one of the world's most risky countries.

Four of the suspects were arrested on Tuesday outside of Santo Domingo, where Ortiz was shot Sunday night while seated outside at a popular night club. Police are also in possession of the gun used in the shooting.

Eddy Feliz Garcia was arrested in the immediate aftermath of the shooting after he allegedly tried to flee a Santo Domingo nightclub before he was stopped by onlookers.
