  • David Ortiz

The cousin, Sixto David Fernández, was seated with Ortiz when a gunman approached and fired a single shot at Ortiz, the officials said.

Retired Boston Red Sox star David Ortiz has been moved out of intensive care and was in good condition, his wife said in a statement on Saturday, almost two weeks after he was shot in the Dominican Republic and moved to a Boston hospital.

He is expected to make a full recovery. "David King and Larry Ronan", the statement read, in part.

Ortiz was shot in the back while out at a bar in his hometown of Santo Domingo on June 9. Fernandez and Ortiz were sitting at the same table and dressed similarly at the time of the shooting, according to police. The bullet passed through Ortiz, perforating his intestines and internal organs.

The 43-year-old Ortiz was not the intended target of the orchestrated attack, Dominican Republic authorities said Wednesday. Fortunately, the legendary Boston Red Sox slugger is recovering fairly well. He allegedly ran a heroin mill in Paterson, New Jersey, that was busted by the Drug Enforcement Administration in January.

At least 10 people are now in custody for their alleged involvement in the shooting. He also made 10 All-Star teams with the Sox.
