UPDATE: Video shows sophisticated attack on ex-slugger David Ortiz
By News Staff & The Associated Press
SANTO DOMINGO, Dominican Republic (AP) – Dominican prosecutors say witnesses and security camera footage indicate that the attempt to kill former Red Sox star David Ortiz was carried out by two men on a motorcycle and two other groups of people in cars that staked out Ortiz as he chatted at a bar on Sunday night.
The details contained in a court document obtained by The Associated Press on Wednesday reveal a new level of sophistication in the attack.
A lawyer for the driver of the motorcycle that was carrying the shooter says his client is innocent and had no idea his passenger was going to commit a crime.
A spokeswoman for the national prosecutor’s office in the Dominican Republic says a second person has been arrested in the investigation. There is no public indication that either man is the suspected shooter.
Ortiz is recovering from his wounds in intensive care in Boston.
