View: https://twitter.com/MarlyRiveraESPN/status/1137926842994888705 Ortiz, affectionately known as "Big Papi," reportedly suffered a gunshot wound to the back. ESPN is reporting that Ortiz was taken to a medical center. His condition was unknown. "At the moment, everything is confusing. I'm trying to find out where they took my son," Ortiz's father told ESPN. Dominican TV station CDN 37 reported that Ortiz was shot in the back after initially reporting he had been wounded in the leg, according to The Associated Press. Dominican National Police Director Ney Aldrin Bautista Almonte told the AP that the gunman shot Ortiz at the Dial Bar and Lounge in Santo Domingo around 8:50 p.m. Sunday night. That gunman was captured, Bautista told the AP, and beaten by the bar's patrons. Investigators are determining whether or not Ortiz was the intended target, Bautista told the AP. Felix Duran Mejia, a spokesman for the Dominican National Police, reportedly told CNN that Ortiz was shot by a motorcyclist who approached Ortiz directly. "The bullet went through his stomach," Mejia reportedly told CNN, adding that Ortiz's condition is "confidential." Rivera, of ESPN, tweeted that Ortiz is out of danger, according to doctors. She also reports that Ortiz was in surgery as of 11:37 p.m. Sunday. ESPN is reporting that that same journalist, Dionisio Soldevila, said Ortiz told doctors, "Please don't let me die. I'm a good man." Soldevila tweeted just after 12:30 a.m. on Monday that Ortiz's father told him that the former major-leaguer is resting, no organs were affected and that he is hoping for a full recovery.
