Durán Mejia told CNN that Ortiz was shot in the back in "an incident that took place at Dial Discotheque in Santo Domingo." Durán Mejia said Ortiz was shot by a motorcyclist who approached Ortiz directly.

Durán Mejia said when Ortiz was shot, “the bullet went through his stomach.” Ortiz is in stable condition and “out of danger” after undergoing surgery, Durán Mejia said.

Ortiz’s father, Leo Ortiz, told reporters in Spanish, “He is resting right now. He is stable.”
