Boston Red Sox legend David Ortiz was shot in the Dominican Republic late Sunday night. Ortiz was at Dial Bar when a man (name not yet known) attempted to rob the establishment. Ortiz was reportedly shot in the left side of the lower back and transferred to the local hospital. His condition is currently unknown, and the suspect is in custody.
.@Enrique_Rojas1 spoke to David Ortiz's father after learning that he was shot in a burglary attempt in the DR: "They called me to tell me that David is injured and that they took him to a medical center, but they did not tell me how he is or exactly where he was transferred."
