Witnesses rushed Garcia on Sunday night and handed him over to police.

Five suspects, including the alleged gunman, have now been detained in connection to the shooting.

The alleged assailants had been paid 400,000 Dominican pesos, or just under $8,000, to kill Ortiz, according to Police Maj.

"His situation is guarded and he'll live in the ICU for the upcoming days", the 43-365 days-venerable's accomplice, Tiffany, acknowledged. Ortiz is now in a Boston hospital recovering from surgery in both the Dominican Republic and Boston.

Known affectionately as "Big Papi", he played 14 seasons for the Red Sox and made 10 All-Star appearances in his 20-year career.

The alleged gunman is seen on surveillance video exiting the vehicle before mounting the motorcycle.

One of the suspects, Mirabal Acosta, was seen driving the Accent before mounting a motorcycle driven by the 25-year-old Feliz Garca, the prosecutors said in a court document. The men got off the motorcycle and left it on the street and drove off in the Kia, leaving the bike next to the Hyundai, records show.

According to court documents obtained by the AP, Feliz Garcia botched the getaway by losing control of his motorcycle.

Pennsylvania authorities have released a mug shot of Rivas-Clase that strongly resembles the suspect in an image provided by Dominican authorities, who provided the same name but without the hyphen listed in USA court documents. He was beaten bloody by enraged fans of Ortiz before they turned him over to the police.

Mirabal Acosta was arrested Tuesday in the town of Mao, in the northern Dominican Republic.

Féliz Garcia's lawyer says his client is an innocent motorcycle taxi driver who had no idea his passenger was going to commit a crime.

Though Nunez was never Ortiz's teammate in Boston, as Santo Domingo natives they share a bond that while centered around baseball also goes well beyond the sport. "He's a fan of David's", the attorney, Deivi Solano, said on Tuesday.

According to his friends, Ortiz traveled the unsafe streets of the Dominican capital with little or no security, trusting his fans to protect him.

The Dominican Republic is one of the world's most unsafe countries.
