Five people are now under arrest in the Dominican Republic in connection with the shooting of former Red Sox star David Ortiz, CBS's WBZ-TV reports. Once he was stable, Ortiz was moved to Boston where he received a second surgery just to make sure that he was going to be okay. In a statement, his wife Tiffany said he will remain in the ICU for the coming days but "is making good progress towards recovery".

The 43-year-old retired athlete was flown to Boston on Monday night for further treatment, arriving in an air ambulance provided by the Red Sox. "My family and I again want to thank everyone for their endless love and well wishes, and still ask for privacy while David continues to heal".

The three-time World Series champion was shot in the Dominican Republic on Sunday and remains in an intensive care unit at Massachusetts General Hospital. Doctors in the Dominican Republic removed his gallbladder and part of his intestine.

In a statement Tuesday, Attorney General Jean Alain Rodríguez's office said prosecutors are requesting one year of preventative detention for Garcia, who also goes by El Nata or Vladi.

Dominican officials identified the suspected gunman as Rolfy Ferreyra Cruz, 25, and said he has been detained, along with four suspected accomplices.

The driver of the motorcycle, Eddy Vladimir Feliz Garcia, was apprehended and beaten by bystanders after the motorcycle faltered.

According to Latin American sports journalist Hector Gomez, the guy who was responsible for firing off the shots at the former Boston slugger claims he "didn't know" he was ordered to shoot the legend, as he was only given information on what the person was wearing.

Garcia made an initial court appearance in Santo Domingo Tuesday night and remains in police custody.
