Last night disturbing reports out of the Dominican Republic about a robbery/ assassination attempt on David Ortiz surfaced in his native country of the Dominican Republic. The 43 year old slugger was shot and was rushed to the hospital as the bullet entered through his back and exited through his stomache. Per video of the event and and eyewitness accounts it appears that this was not a botched robbery it looked more like an assassination attempt.
Police in the Dominican Republic are saying the gunshot wound suffered by David Ortiz was not from an attempted robbery, as initially speculated. Alleged video of the incident shows a man walking up to a bar, aiming almost point blank and firing a gun. https://t.co/lFSmXaylum

Testimony from someone at the restaurant: Ortiz was taking photos with fans and the guy came up from behind him and shot him. Blood everywhere. Man here speaking believes he acted alone. https://t.co/gzBMhcyfFY
