Less than 24 hours after the sports world saw the horrible news of David Ortiz being shot in his native Dominican Republic, we are finding out more information of what transpired on Sunday night.
The 43-year-old slugger was just sitting with fans and friends at a local bar when an apparent shooter was said to have tried to rob him and shot him as a result. That was the initial reports coming out of the D.R.
Once video surfaced, it was very apparent it was less than a robbery attempt and more of a person who wanted to not only inflict pain upon Ortiz, but ultimately take his life for no reason.
Witnesses on the scene described Ortiz as taking photos with fans and just having an all-around great time before he got shot.
The person who was responsible never got far away, as fans grabbed him, beat him, and then police would eventually arrest him.
The worst is clearly not over for him as the D.R. has one of the toughest prisons on Earth as I’m sure Ortiz has a bunch of fans in there waiting to defend his honor.
