    Hoping it isn't life threatening

    I saw some footage of the guy who shot him getting kicked. Was gonna post here but probably best for people to just find on their own.

    There is also a security video showing Ortiz being shot. I won't link that, but not hard to find.

    Sounds like it was his lower back.

    Proper punishment for shooting someone.

    Definitely not a robbery if the video I saw was legit, guy just walked up on the sidewalk, shot Ortiz in a crowded bar/restaurant and ran.

    Heard on the radio on my way home that he’s reported to be in stable condition like the tweet above said

    Was not a robbery attempt. Dude just came down the street, pulled out a gun from 10-15 feet back and shot him. Pretty crowded restaurant.

    They beat the **** out of the guy that did it.

    As a general rule of thumb, it's probably not a good idea to provoke a drug lord...

    Dominican Republic is a mess. People dying and getting shot left and right. Rethink those travel plans.

    On the flip side, Ortiz is a national hero down there, so going after him could end up being pretty ******* stupid (as you saw what the locals did to the shooter)

    An unconfirmed report last night said this was a hit from a DR drug lord. Supposedly over a woman. One of many stories, I'm sure.

    Agreed, if this is what happens to a local hero then I don't have much of a chance. I was there once and that was enough for me. Just doesn't feel right to be parting in a place like that when you see what you drove past to get to the resort. I know it's a major or the only source of income for them but still not my cup of tea.

    Then you have the beatings and the people getting sick from insecticides. Pass.
