"After hours with Amy Lawrence, and then as always our phone number eight five five two one two, four two two seven that's eight five five two one two, four CBS. So I promise you this David Ortiz story gets more and more bizarre. Authorities in the Dominican Republic. This includes the attorney general and the national police director. So they've got the big guns on this particular case, because he is, maybe the most famous resident most famous product. They had this, this press conference and told reporters on Wednesday that it was actually a case of mistaken identity, but that's not even the craziest part. So according to the dirty general, and the authorities in Santo Domingo David Ortiz, wasn't the target at all. So the rumors about why there might have been hit out on David Ortiz, I suggest that you forget you ever heard them because there's a lot of crap that was flying around. Authorities say that the real target was a guy who was sitting at the same table. Another man at the same cable as Ortiz. They were this outdoor cafe restaurant. And the guy who was supposed to be assassinated supposed to be killed. Was an associate of Victor Hugo Gomez, Mexico's Gulf cartel. So this is something out of the movies, or if you ever watch those shows, like dateline where they, they unravel all of the layers, some crazy murder mystery. So Victor Hugo Gomez, according to authorities hired a gang of killers, and the more you find out the more you hear from authorities. There are so many people involved, of course, they were all going to start spilling their guts, and one of them got caught. So much for the snitch is get stitches stuff, so Gomez with this Gulf cartel in Mexico. Hired a gang of killers to take out his cousin, and that's the guy who was sitting at David Ortiz's table. Apparently, the cousin may have guess, it's only certain stitches, the cousin may have spoken to Dominican authorities in a drug investigation going back to two thousand eleven we're talking about nearly a decade ago. And now you've got this cousin who apparently didn't states, the DA is looking out for this Victor Hugo Gomez. So he orders the hit, but he's not in the DR, and so he has to higher plus he doesn't do his own dirty work. He has to hire this gang of people who completely bought this entire thing. I'm telling you, what these guys are not smart knots. More at all. The details are bizarre. So the cousin again with with David Ortiz and a gunman approaches any fires this shot at big Papi's back. Well, the reason that, that the gunman shot poppy instead of the cousin is because of a bad picture that was sent to him. Okay. So in order to identify the target. There was a photo that was sent to the gunman. Apparently, it was a really bad photo. So it wasn't a real close up photo. And it was badly lit and it was literally taken while they were sitting at this table. Okay. So it was taken minutes before the gunman was supposed to do the dirty work. He was supposed to do the hit. So the photo gets sent over the phone and this is crazy. I swear, I'm not making this up. There's a white freezer in the photo, somehow there's a freezer at the angle that they took the photo of the table. There's a freezer that is blocking the targets lower body in the picture. So it looks like the cousin is wearing. White pants. So when the gunman comes up to the table, he sees the man wearing white pants. And shoots him. The man mirror wearing white pants was David Ortiz. The cousin was wearing black pants, but because of the angle of the photo. And because it was a it was bad quality. The gunman has this crappy photo thinks that the target is wearing white pants and shoots the wrong guy. Just when I think you couldn't possibly be any dumber. Variously. At least eleven people have been arrested in this case so far singing like Canaries from the guy who pulled the trigger to the guy on the motorcycle who tried to get away. So there was a driver on a motorcycle. The getaway guy was on a motorcycle who crashed the motorcycle. And so he ended up getting beat up member. There was that whole aspect to it. He got beat up while people called authorities. This is after big Papi, get shot. And then there's a bunch of other accomplices, so the bag man, you know, whoever was was sending the phone messages. All these various associates of this Cortel guy looking at tell you Gomez. And I love out the story that I read called him the alleged mastermind. Are you kidding me? The whole thing blew up in his face not to mention he had an idiot who was taking the photo. And then and then it turns out to be the Dominican Republic's most famous baseball player. I mean, there's some other famous ones to right now, one of the most famous guys in the DR whenever he's there, so Gomez, the cartel guy is believed to be in the US. And now the DA is after him. According to with authorities and here's some other crazy details. The gun that was used in the shooting. Was then buried in the garden of one of the suspects homes. Okay. So they had a plan for getting rid of the murder weapon, obviously, it wasn't a murder, but it was supposed to be they botched that too. So they buried in somebody's Gordon. But the mom sees whoever is out. There digging goes out digs up the gun, and it's like hey got your gun? So the mom of the suss point of the suspects then turns in the weapon, then how about this. Somebody had the cell phone that was used to kind of plan the attack. So they're obviously cellphone records and also to send the picture to the person who's supposed to be doing the hit. They sell the cell phone to woman who's completely unrelated, so they can get rid of the evidence. But that woman then finds out what happens I don't know if there was evidence. On the phone that she found. But she turned it over to authorities as well. I mean, if you're gonna hire a gang of people to pull off a hit, maybe make sure that they can pass an IQ test. The alleged shooter skinny tattooed, twenty five year old the US actually wants him on armed robbery and gun charges in the great state of New Jersey. So the DA's involved US authorities want their shot at this alleged shooter. Here's here's the crazy part other than the pants which the pants were actually a freezer. But in the photo other than the pants the white pants, which David Ortiz was wearing big Papi's. He's a big guy. He's a big bear, right? Six foot three ways at least two fifty the target the cousin who was about to get his possibly snitching on, on his family member. Not only is he lighter skinned buddies like tiny compared to David Ortiz. There's actually video of, of the shooting taking place at this cafe in. Santo domingo. But the story that the attorney general the Dominican Republic is telling is nuts. I mean, I'm not surprised they all got caught. But are you kidding me? A bad photo. You order a hit you're paying for you're paying all these people to take out your cousin, and I guess he was not the one that sent the photo. But how about you hire people who are competent, thankfully, most importantly, David Ortiz, has been upgraded to good condition. He still in the hospital in Boston. But doctors have upgraded to him from guarded condition to good condition, while all of the investigation, the evidence gathering and now the, the revealing of what actually happened is taking place in the Dominican Republic. So I guess I'm relieved that it wasn't a hit on big Papi. I don't know. I'm not sure I would be anxious to go back to my home country. If I'm if I'm David Ortiz, but his father and his sister lived there. So if it were me, and I thought there was a hit being taken out on me, I would definitely worry about my family, but since it was a case of mistake. Taken identity over some white pants in a bad photo. This is the kind of stuff you can't make up. Yeah. And they happen to be seated at the same table. It literally was a case of wrong place, wrong time same color pants. They look nothing alike. I'm glad he's okay. And I'm glad the forties. Have figured it out. And I'm glad that the gang of killers. That's what the call them. The gang of killers are idiots. All right. Coming up, maybe the sweetest moment in sports that you will see or in our case here all week long.

David Ortiz may have been targeted by crooked cop hit man

"Ninety nine update on David Ortiz. And if you follow my Twitter, if you listen to the program, I said this on the show yesterday. I also tweeted it out that I sure as hell wish that David Ortiz, big Papi. I from the Boston Red Sox and now retired who is ambushed and shot. I mean folks, this was like an assassination attempt. As you is sitting outside a restaurant, bar, and clearly guy comes up to him off a motorcycle and pop and shoots. Big papi? He's lucky that that wasn't a headshot. Big Papi, even though he had internal injuries. He's lucky. That was a shot to the torso, and that could have easily been a headshot folks that was just a couple of feet away from the gunman putting a bullet. Into big Papi's head which also raises. The question did the assassin, why should say would be assassin would be murderer? Was this supposed to be a deaf hit was was big Papi was the plan to take out and kill him? Or was it a plan to injure him wound him with the gun shot? I mean, these are all questions that I'm sure gonna come out in the story arose yesterday that this individual. Might have been a part of a hit because a drug Lord was pissed off that big Papi was allegedly having an affair with his wife. I don't know if that's true. You know there was a reporting of this yesterday. But nothing else today. What I did see today is that Ortiz might have been targeted by a crooked Dominican police officer hitman. That's one of the stories today. I mean obviously this was a targeted assassination attempt. This was definitely a hired hit. But now reports are that they're looking at a police officer in the shooting. Who might be part of this. And again, the Daily Mail reported that this might have been retaliation because David Ortiz was allegedly having an affair with some Dominican drug lords wife where shop. That's a crazy story. But as I raised on yesterday's program, why would someone deliberately try to take out David Ortiz? You know fried of Boston. Okay. Wasn't in Boston. But he's also the pride of the Dominican Republic as well. As many of these athletes that are playing baseball in the major leagues here the United States. So he underwent a second surgery. He arrived in Boston. We told you about this on yesterday's program that he was en route from Santo Domingo in the Dominican Republic was en route up to Logan in Boston. As the Red Sox had chartered a private jet to bring him up, and it was a second surgery that occurred in Boston last night at Mass General, and according to or teases wife Hayes in intensive care in stable condition. Statement said thanking the, the Red Sox organization the hospital. Lastly, quote, I want to thank everyone for the outpouring of support and love that we've received during this incredibly difficult time we ask for privacy is David works towards recovery. The second surgery lasted, apparently until about one AM early this morning. That's courting to Leo Lopez whose Ortiz's media assistant didn't specify exactly what the doctors discovered, he did say, though, that Ortiz will be closely monitored for the next day or two. Lopez told ESPN that Ortiz has been alert as spoken to his family even flashed a smile. During the first surgery, which was performed by doctors in the Dominican Republic. The story that came out there that there had to be repaired to both his intestines and his liver. There was also report. That is a gallbladder had to be removed to get to the liver. But that is gallbladder was not hit, but still had to be taken out. So now the gallbladder that's going to affect his processing of rich and creamy, and buttery foods, I believe. And now the individuals apparently in custody the shooter and the guy driving the motorcycle so in custody. And is this going to trace back to a crooked cop and a drug dealer? Or is that gonna turn out to be some, some bogus story? I just wish the best for big Papi in just a crazy. Maniacal. Insane

"And. Jeez. Right. Yeah. Big Papi is what we're talking about. David Ortiz is the former star of the Boston Red Sox. He still involved with the organization and has been on this program several times, actually, I think just about a year ago. Was last time he was here and over the weekend. Just let actually Sunday evening. He was shot in the back by a motorcyclist in the Dominican Republic. He was there on Sunday. He was shot in the back, some guy on a motorcycle approach David Ortiz, outside of the dial discotheque in Santo Domingo. And the bullet went through his stomach. He's in stable condition. He is out of danger, according to his father and spokespeople at that hospital after undergoing surgery, Leo Ortiz, who is at big Papi's daddy spoke to reporters outside the hospital after surgery and said that his son was safe. He's resting now and he is stable. That's what he said, in Spanish, a second person who was with or teas was also shot this as a television host there, according to his wife, they were both on their backs. It was. Very fast. He doesn't remember much because he was also in shock from the bullet wound. Apparently this was targeted multiple people have been detained in connection with the shooting. And it's unclear whether those detained include the motorcyclists who according to reports at least on the scene people that were in the crowd. They're actually captured this guy and beat the heck out of them until police came one of the suspects is being treated at the local hospital. So again, they're trying to sort out this morning, how many people were connected to this, if this was because this happened at a nightclub, there could be a lot of people who got caught up. But the good news is he is out of surgery. And, and hopefully we'll be on the road to recovery kind of a strange story that I it was being reported as a burglary. But now they're saying this guy just drove up on his motorcycle and started shooting. Does he lived there part of the time? I must families there. So I think he visits a lot. But I think he lives here. I think this is where his permanent residence. Well he had a home in framingham. I don't know. He sold it had big house here and had. Restaurant here for a long time restaurant didn't do too well, but he's exceedingly popular was when he was a player, and as you said he'd been here come, and he was more recently even than a year or so ago. He was just really. Very positive influence, spend a lot of time kids, very positive with the team the team. The log the guys on the team loved him the management fun. So fun to watch. She was really he is not a was. I don't want to memorialize him but he is a such a fun player to watch. Yeah. So being shot in the back. Oh, what kind of there was no out their stomach? What was the, the if I missed which you said the essence of why this person went after him? They don't they don't know at first when I before I went to sleep last night. This had just started to break and people were saying it was a burglary at a nightclub. But now this morning they're saying that he specifically was ambushed about eight fifty a gunman approached him from behind, and shot him at close range, and that according to some reports that gunmen and the police have not confirmed. This was captured and beaten by the crowd, but they arrested a bunch of people as part of this. So it'll be interesting to see why what the motivation was if he was really trying to take his money. I don't know according to his father, he was very lucky because he didn't have any damage to his major organs. But what the heck did Dominican? Well, there you go. That's there is no good PR going on for the Dominican Republic. Right. Being shot and beaten and all sorts of things killed. Yeah. No. Yeah. I think they're also there's also the, the rumor that was part of a larger shakedown a big Papi was this, you know, there, and hopefully, maybe when he starts speaking again, with family and police, maybe they're maybe he even has some insight that we don't know yet, but he is, like, Jen said he so lucky that the bullet went kind of clean through in, because that's. Would you consider him to be a legend as the land apply to him? Yeah. What other sports figures around now, who were with a rod is a legend. Okay. Derek jeeter probably also legendary player, I would say for the dodgers, he's still playing but Clayton Kershaw will be a legend people always pay attention to his pitching, but modern day.
