BREAKING: David Ortiz shot in lower back in Dominican Republic

Boston and Dominican legend David Ortiz was shot in an apparent ambush on Avenida Venezuela in his native Dominican Republic on Sunday night. Details are still coming in.

Former Boston Red Sox slugger and Dominican star David Ortiz was shot and wounded at an entertainment center in Santo Domingo, Dominican Republic, his father told ESPN's Enrique Rojas.

"They called to tell me that David is injured and that they took him to a medical center, but they did not tell me how he is or exactly where he was transferred," Leo Ortiz said via telephone from the Dominican Republic.

"At the moment, everything is confusing. I'm trying to find out where they took my son," Mr. Ortiz added.

There is also very graphic footage of the alleged shooter getting beaten up afterwards, but violence isn't the cure for violence, so not going to post that.

Latest rumor as of 1:35 AM is that it wasn't a robbery, but the shooter intended to shoot a Dominican singer:
