David Ortiz suffered liver and bowel damage, had gallbladder removed

David Ortiz

David Ortiz is said to be in stable condition after he was shot in the Dominican Republic on Sunday night, but he sustained serious injuries and will remain under the care of doctors.

Leo Lopez, who works as Ortiz’s assistant and press representative, told ESPN early Monday morning that Ortiz sustained damage to his liver and intestines and had to have his gallbladder removed.

Ortiz was shot in the back and the bullet exited through his stomach. The fact that he is in stable condition is a great sign, but he has already undergone multiple surgeries and remains in intensive care.

Ortiz was at a bar that he frequents in his hometown of Santo Domingo when a man came up behind him and shot him. Initial reports indicated it was a robbery attempt, but a disturbing video from the scene did not appear to support that.
