The alleged shooter of David Ortiz has been arrested along with four others in a group offered almost $8,000 to kill the former Boston Red Sox star at a Dominican Republic bar, authorities said on Wednesday.
Bautista disclosed this information Wednesday afternoon at a news conference but did not disclose a motive in the shooting if there is one known.
The gun reportedly used in the shooting, a Browning Hi Power semi-automatic pistol, was later found by authorities at another suspect's home.
Since then, four more men have been arrested in connection with the shooting, including Rolfy Ferreyra who is believed to be the alleged shooter. Ortiz, a future Hall of Famer, was shot in the back at a lounge in Santo Domingo, the capital of the Dominican Republic, on Sunday night. The Red Sox released a statement on Wednesday from Ortiz's wife, Tiffany, who said her husband is making "good progress toward recovery".
