Police: Suspects in David Ortiz Shooting Were Paid $7,800; 6 in Custody

According to the outlet, police have both suspects in the shooting in custody, but have only officially acknowledged the arrest of one, 25-year-old Eddy Feliz Garcia. In it, you can clearly see a baseball cap-wearing gunman walk up to Ortiz at the patio bar and shoot him in the back.

The statement also thanked the surgeons at the Abel Gonzalez Clinic where David, 43, was immediately rushed to after he was shot in the back at an amusement center in his hometown of Santo Domingo. The video then appears to show that motorcycle heading toward the bar. Meanwhile, a Pennsylvania prosecutor said he believes another suspect in the Ortiz shooting is wanted for attempted homicide in the state.

Ferreira-Cruz is facing decades in prison if he is found guilty of the crimes he was charged with committing in New Jersey, officials said. One said police are investigating whether Lebron played a role in arranging the $7,800 payout to the alleged hitmen. Bella Brea, his lawyer, said Thursday that investigators told her they have evidence that Alvarez spoke with some of the other suspects. They said the coordinator of the attack was among those arrested, but they have not said who they think might've ordered the shooting.

Luis Rivas-Clase, 31, is accused of shooting a victim in Reading in April of previous year, the Dispatch reports.
