David Ortiz was shot in Santo Domingo, Dominican Republic Sunday night in what has been described as an attempted robbery, according to reports.
Initial reports had him being shot in the leg, but later it would change to him actually being hit in the back, with the bullet exiting out his stomach.
Ortiz was said to be with television personality Jhoel López and Dominican rapper Secreto El Biberon at the Dial Bar and Lounge, and he was said to be taken to a hospital in the city to be treated.
His condition has since been released are the reports are good.
Dominican journalist Dionisio Soldevila reported that Ortiz told the emergency room doctor: “Please don’t let me die. I’m a good man.” He added that the chief of police told him Ortiz was in stable condition.
