UPDATE: Footage of David Ortiz Point Blank Range Shooting & Shooter Beatdown Released

Prayers in order for David Ortiz. Although his condition was first reported as "stable & recovering" it was later reported that damage to Ortiz is said to be extensive and in a statement to ESPN his assistant, Leo Lopez, stated that "Ortiz had to remove parts of the intestines and the colon and remove the gallbladder. His liver was damaged, too."  This comes after being shot at point blank range in what it now being reported as a robbery attempt. 

The Red Sox have sent people to the Dominican Republic to assist in the matter and team doctors are aiding in Ortiz's medical care. 

Many people have taken to their social media accounts in order to offer moral support for Ortiz. 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Catch video footage of the shooting and shooter beatdown below. Praying Big Papi gets to 110% health ASAP. 

In a stark reminder of how life events can happen in the blink of an eye, the first clip was taken only moments before the shooting.

This is horrible and I feel those involved should be tortured. I am not a fan of any team in Boston but he didn’t deserve this. Big Papi is an awesome athlete on and off the field. These men could’ve asked for help and possibly got help they didn’t have to shoot him. This world is full of evil. I am praying Big Papi fully recovers and the shooter and all involved be punished. Get well Big Papi
