Eddy Feliz Garcia was named by Dominican Republic federal police as one of two suspects in the shooting of former Boston Red Sox slugger David Ortiz. The suspects are accused of showing up on a motorcycle before one of them leapt from it and ambushed the baseball star.

El Dia reported that, according to National Police, Garcia is accused of being the driver of the motorcycle carrying the triggerman, who is still at large.

Ortiz, who retired in 2016, was shot as he frequented a club in the Dominican Republic on June 9, 2019. “Big Papi,” as he is known, was reportedly in stable condition, and Garcia was arrested after he was beaten and handed over by the crowd. One journalist claimed that Ortiz said to an ER doctor: “Please don’t let me die. I’m a good man.” Video captured the moment that Ortiz was shot; although grainy, the video is disturbing because of the moment it captures.

ESPN reported on June 9 that the former baseball star is out of danger. However, on June 10, Listin Diario quoted Ortiz’s spokesman as saying: “They had to remove part of the intestines and removed the gallbladder,” adding that the bullet pierced Ortiz’s liver, which was bleeding.

Embedded video

Garcia is 23-years-old. Police say he’s in custody after he was captured (and beaten by) the crowd. The second suspect fled. The Red Sox are flying Ortiz to Boston for additional treatment.

Ortiz’s assistant, Leo Lopez, told Diario Libre that the shooting was “an act of hired killers.” However, he rejected claims by the British publication Daily Mail that the hit was motivated by jealousy involving a woman, according to the publication (those are claims not confirmed by authorities).

On June 9, 2019 David Ortiz, former baseball player, was shot at a club in the Dominican Republic. The suspects are accused of showing up on a motorcycle before one of them leapt from it and ambushed the baseball star. Eddy who has been identified as one of the suspects was the driver of the motorcycle.

David was rushed to the hospital where he underwent surgery and according to his spokesman, some parts of his intestines and the gallbladder had to be removed. He also said that the bullet also pierced David’s liver which was bleeding.

According to WUSA9 the identification of Eddy Feliz Garcia as a suspect in the shooting came from the National Police. The Dominican National Police also confirmed to CNN that Ortiz was shot “by a motorcyclist who approached Ortiz directly.”

CNN reported that there was more than one suspect was involved and at the time it wasn’t clear whether the motorcyclist was in custody (videos of the suspect being beaten and of Ortiz being shot appear to show a suspect possibly wearing different shirts, although the latter video is grainy.)

They also reported that a suspect was hospitalized although they were not clear as to whether the hospitalized suspect was the triggerman on the motorcycle or was involved in another way.

The police later confirmed the reports by the local outlet Listin Diario that there may have been two suspects on the motorcycle.

According to the Chicago Tribune Ortiz “was ambushed by a man who got off a motorcycle and shot him in the back at nearly point-blank range.”

According to Ney Aldrin Bautista, Dominican National Police Director the gunman approached from behind and shot Ortiz. He also added that “the gunman was captured and beaten by a crowd of people.”

According to the police report the authorities are in possession of “a motorcycle Bajaj Platina, in which the people involved moved, whose origin is investigated.”

The report continues; “two young men showed up on the aforementioned motorcycle. One of the occupants of the motorcycle approached the amusement center and made a single shot that hit the former player and his companion, after which they tried to escape on the motorcycle, falling to the pavement

One of the involved managed to escape on foot, while another, identified as Eddy Vladimir Felix Garcia, was arrested by the crowd that hit him and handed over to the authorities.”

Eddy Feliz Garcia Motive

The motive for shooting Ortiz is not clear yet although Bautista ruled out robbery as a motive. The Daily Mail claimed that the suspects were hired by an unnamed drug lord to shot Ortiz as he was suspecting Ortiz of having an affair with his partner. This was however dismissed by Ortiz’s spokesperson.
