Many were reporting that the David Ortiz shooting a few nights ago was not a robbery but definitely looked like more of an assassination attempt. And now reporting To The Daily Mail it looks like Ortiz messed with the wrong people:
Police in the Dominican Republic believe former Boston Red Sox star David ‘Big Papi’ Ortiz was shot by two cops hired by a Dominican Republic drug lord who believed the baseball player was having an affair with his wife, DailyMail.com has learned.
Three law enforcement sources confirmed the motive on Monday as Ortiz, 43, recovered in the hospital.
The drug lord has not been named.
Ortiz’s camp has confirmed the shooting was an assassination attempt but of course have not confirmed the reports about why.
