David Ortiz Shooting Suspect Reportedly Offered $7800 to Murder MLB Legend

Leo Lopez, an Ortiz spokesman and family friend, said Ortiz took several steps in the hospital Tuesday.

Officials declined to address what the motive for the shooting might have been, but said the suspects carried out the attack on Ortiz for about $400,000 Dominican Pesos, just shy of $8,000. His wife, Tiffany Ortiz said in a statement that the former Red Sox starwas in guarded condition, but is making good progress toward recovery.

Eddy Vladimir Feliz Garcia has been accused of driving the gunman on a motorcycle to a club where Ortiz was socializing. He has been charged with being an accomplice to attempted murder. He was stabilized and then flown to Boston and taken to Mass General, where a second surgery was performed late Monday night.

According to documents obtained by The Boston Globe, witnesses saw the alleged shooter and driver meeting together a day before the shooting.

Clifton Police Detective Lt. Robert Bracken told the website he suspects the man who committed the robberies is the same one who confessed to shooting Ortiz, but said he needed to see Ferreyra's biographical information to be certain.

This was the he original video showing David Ortiz being shot. He was tracked down and arrested Tuesday night.
