2nd arrest made in shooting of David Ortiz A second person has been arrested in the investigation into the shooting of former Red Sox star David Ortiz, according to ABC News. The person is not suspected to be the person who shot Ortiz, and police are searching for a third person, ABC reported. Ortiz was shot Sunday in the Dominican Republic and is now recovering from exploratory surgery in Boston, where he was flown Monday night. Another suspect connected to the shooting faces multiple charges in the Dominican Republic, including attempted homicide. Eddy Feliz Garcia, 25, is accused of being the driver of the motorcycle on which the shooter arrived.

Police in the Dominican Republic are reportedly looking into the possibility that the man who shot David Ortiz on Sunday night was hired to kill the former MLB star.

Three law enforcement sources told the Daily Mail that investigators believe two police officers were hired by a drug lord to kill Ortiz because the drug lord believed Ortiz was having an affair with his wife. Police in Ortiz’s hometown of Santo Domingo would neither confirm nor deny the suspected motive.

“So far the case is under investigation. Social media networks are speculating many things,” Lieutenant Pimentel of the National Police in Santo Domingo told the Daily Mail. “We cannot give you more details.”

Leo Lopez, who works as Ortiz’s assistant and press representative, denied that the shooting had anything to do with an alleged affair, but he expressed confidence that someone put out a hit on Ortiz.

“There is no doubt that it was an act of hired killers,” Lopez told Dominican media outlet Diario Libre. “If we had known that there was a dangerous situation, he would not have been there at that moment.”

Initial reports indicated that Ortiz was shot in an attempted robbery, but a disturbing video of the incident showed a man walk up behind Ortiz and shoot him in the back before fleeing. The bullet entered Ortiz’s back and exited through his stomach, and he had to undergo extensive surgery after some of his intestines and organs were damaged. Ortiz is expected to be transported to Boston at some point on Monday evening, and the Red Sox have said he is in serious but stable condition.
