Santo Domingo, Dominican Republic (CNN) — The suspect being held by police in the Dominican Republic in connection with the shooting of Boston Red Sox all-star David Ortiz is expected to be charged with one count of being an accomplice to attempted murder, a spokesman for the prosecutor and the man’s defense attorney said.

Ortiz and a friend were shot Sunday night at the Dial nightclub in Santo Domingo. The man who police say fired the shot is still at large.

The article goes on to state the following:

Ortiz, 43, was struck in the back, and “the bullet went through his stomach,” Felix Durán Mejia, a spokesman for the Dominican Republic National Police, told CNN. Ortiz is recovering at Boston’s Massachusetts General Hospital.

Féliz García and a second man arrived at the nightclub on a motorcycle before one of them opened fire, police said. The two tried to drive away after the shooting, but the motorcycle fell to the pavement, police said.
A crowd attacked Féliz García and handed him over to police, but the second man got away on foot, police said.
