Former Boston Red Sox slugger David Ortiz was hospitalized Monday after being shot in the back Sunday night at a bar in the Dominican Republic. The gunman fired at close range from behind, injuring the Dominican native and two others at the Dial Bar and Lounge in Santo Domingo. Bar patrons captured the gunman before turning him over to police, Dominican National Police Director Ney Aldrin Bautista Almonte said. Police investigators have not determined whether Ortiz was the intended target. Jhoel López, a Dominican TV host, was also injured.
