Police in the Dominican Republic has arrested six men — including the suspected gunman — in the shooting of former Boston Red sox All Star David Ortiz. Dominican authorities said they arrested and questioned Ramon Martinez Perez, also known by the alias Rolfie, about the Sunday night shooting,

The Dominican national police took Martinez Peres into custody. Another suspect, Eddy Vladimir Feliz Garcia, appeared in court. Feliz Garcia faces charges of being an accomplice to attempted murder for allegedly driving the shooter to the nightclub where Ortiz was shot. Feliz Garcia’s lawyer said his client was not aware of the plot to shoot Ortiz and unwittingly drove the shooter to the club. Police said the shooter ran away from the scene after the shooting while witnesses tackled Feliz Garcia, who was arrested immediately. Four other men, including Joel Rodriguez Cruz, Oliver Moises Mirabal Acosta, Reynaldo Rodriguez Valenzuela and Polfirio Allende Deschamps Vazquez, were also arrested. A seventh suspect, Luis Alfredo Riva Clases, remains at large and authorities have requested that he turn himself in.

Ortiz, 43, was shot in the back on last Sunday in Santo Domingo. The three-time World Series champion underwent an operation in his native Dominican Republic before the Red Sox chartered a plane to transport him to Boston for second surgery.
