David Ortiz shooting case of mistaken identity, says Dominican Republic's lead prosecutor

Attorney General Jean Alain Rodriguez told reporters the intended target was another man, dressed similarly to Ortiz, who was seated with the retired baseball star.

Rodriguez said the shooting was orchestrated by a member of Mexico's Gulf Cartel, who remains on the run.

He said: "We inform formally that the object of this attempt was not the person David Ortiz but another individual that was located at the same place and at the same table.

"The confusion as to the objective was seemingly brought about by a photograph taken some minutes before the attack and exchanged between the intellectual authors and the perpetrators.

"The instructed target of the intellectual authors was a friend of David Ortiz, and someone he shared the same table with.The evidence show unequivocally and scientifically that the attack was directed specifically against Sixto David Fernandez, who was a frequent customer at that establishment, especially on Sundays."

Eleven suspects have been arrested, including the alleged shooter.
