CLEVELAND OH- OCTOBER 06 David Ortiz #34 of the Boston Red Sox looks on prior to game one of the American League Divison Series against the Cleveland Indians at Progressive Field

A horrifying video captures the moment ex-Boston Red Sox DH David Ortiz was shot at a Dominican Republic bar Sunday night.

Ortiz's father told ESPN his son was wounded at an entertainment center in the Dominican capital of Santo Domingo.

As of the most recent reports, Ortiz, a beloved figure in the Dominican Republic, in Boston, and across baseball, is reportedly in stable condition.

Authorities say Ortiz was ambushed by a man who got off a motorcycle and shot him in the back at almost point-blank range around 8:50 p.m. local time Sunday at the Dial Bar and Lounge in Santo Domingo.

Dionisio Soldevila, a local reporter. told ESPN that when Ortiz spoke with his doctors, the star told them: "Please don't let me die".

Red Sox president Sam Kennedy told WCVB-TV that doctors told the team Ortiz's condition is still "serious".

Multiple people have been detained in connection with the shooting, Durán Mejia said.

In a 2017 piece for The Player's Tribune, Martinez said he took Ortiz "under [his] wing" when the man who would become known as Big Papi first made his way into the league with the Minnesota Twins.

Ortiz, 43, helped lead Boston to three World Series titles and retired after the 2016 season.

Ortiz, known also as "Big Papi", was honored by Boston, with baseball fans praying for a full recovery. Police subsequently arrested the attacker, but authorities will only be able to question him once he's undergone treatment. He suffered damage to his liver and intestines, and underwent a six-hour, emergency surgery at a Dominican hospital before being transferred to Mass General Monday night. Bautista told media that the gunman failed to flee the scene as he was mobbed and beaten up by a crowd at the bar.

Two other people were injured during the ambush, including television presenter Jhoel López; police said they were investigating whether Ortiz was the intended target.

The official MLB Twitter account also tweeted "Our thoughts are with David Ortiz", after receiving word of the shooting. "He is stable, awake, and resting comfortably this morning in the ICU where he is expected to remain for the next several days", she said.

Ortiz was rushed to a hospital.
