SANTO DOMINGO, Dominican Republic — The latest on the shooting of former Boston Red Sox star David Ortiz in the Dominican Republic (all times local):

10:40 p.m.

A spokeswoman for the national prosecutor's office in the Dominican Republic says a second person has been arrested in the investigation into the shooting of former Red Sox star David Ortiz. There is no public indication the man is the suspected shooter.

Spokeswoman Julieta Tejeda reported the arrest to a group of journalists via WhatsApp on Tuesday night. She declined to provide further details.

Ortiz was shot Sunday and is now recovering from exploratory surgery in Boston, where he was flown Monday night.

David Ortiz Shooting Doesn't Look Like an Attempted Robbery

David Ortiz Shooting Doesn't Look Like an Attempted Robbery It’s far too early to draw definitive conclusions about why David Ortiz was shot. Still, early signs suggest that the assailant’s goal was more akin to an attempted murder than to a robbery. If the shooter merely wanted to take an item from Ortiz’s possession, it’s hard to believe he would walk up from behind Ortiz in a crowded bar, not make any attempt to interact with Ortiz and then shoot him in the back and run off without taking anything from him. Robbery doesn’t make any sense in that context.

Ortiz's wife, Tiffany, said in a statement earlier Tuesday that the player is "stable, awake and resting comfortably" in the intensive care unit at Massachusetts General Hospital. He is expected to remain there several days.

Dominican doctors removed Ortiz's gallbladder and part of his intestine.
