I can’t say that I am surprised.
That was supposed to be an assassination, so you knew it had to be personal. Here is what we know so far via the NY Daily Post.
Authorities in the Dominican Republic believe David Ortiz was shot by two police officers hired by a drug lord who thought the former Red Sox slugger was having an affair with his wife, according to a report.
Three law enforcement sources have confirmed the motive to the Daily Mail. The local drug lord has not been identified.
Police have so far arrested Eddy Feliz Garcia but the probe is ongoing, the news outlet reported.
Ortiz, who is recovering from surgery — in which parts of his intestines and colon, as well as his gallbladder, were removed — is married to Tiffany Ortiz and has three children.
It is just a crazy time.
Ortiz amazingly plans to make a full recovery because the shooter was a terrible shot even at close range.
