Dominican AG says Ortiz shot by mistake

The Dominican Republic’s attorney general and national police director told reporters that the attempted murder was ordered from the United States by Victor Hugo Gomez, an associate of Mexico’s Gulf Cartel. They said Gomez had hired a gang of killers to eliminate his cousin, whom Gomez suspected of turning him in to Dominican drug investigators in 2011.

The cousin, Sixto David Fernández, was seated with the former baseball star on the night of 9 June, when a gunman approached and fired a single shot at Ortiz, the officials said. Fernández owned an auto-repair shop and was friends with Ortiz, according to attorney general Jean Alain Rodríguez and major general Ney Aldrin Bautista Almonte, director of the Dominican Republic’s national police.

"Tell me the good news first."

"The hit man found your cousin. He was eating dinner with David Ortiz."

"That is good news. So what's the bad news?"

"He didn't shoot your cousin. He shot Ortiz."
