A motorcyclist in Dominican Republic shot former Boston Red Sox Star David Ortiz in the back on Sunday at a club.

According to reports the bullet went straight through the 43-year olds stomach but thankfully he is in stable condition after undergoing surgery.

In the footage recovered from the nightclub the shooters legs are visible, and after the shots were fired, Ortiz fell out of his chair and club goers fled the scene.

In a short interview, David Ortiz’s father Leo Ortiz confirmed that he is in stable condition, and is currently resting.

Multiple suspects have been detained in relation to the shooting.
