One of the seven suspects in the shooting of former Boston Red Sox player David Ortiz is believed to be the same man wanted on an attempted homicide charge stemming from a shooting in Reading, the York Dispatch is reporting.
In the court document, Dominican prosecutors said one of the shooting suspects, Oliver Moises Mirabal Acosta, was driving a grey Hyundai Accent before mounting a motorcycle driven by 25-year-old Eddy Vladimir Feliz Garcia.
According to court documents obtained by the Boston Globe, two men were caught on camera talking in a gray vehicle on a nearby street before they got on a motorcycle to ride towards the bar, where Ortiz was ambushed while out with friends in his native Santo Domingo.
Four other suspects also remain at large and are being pursued by authorities as Ortiz continues to recover at a Boston hospital after the Sunday night attack.
But they say he had help: New surveillance video shows a meeting between the suspects in two cars, and the accused motorcycle driver, Eddy Garcia, near the bar before the ambush.

Ortiz underwent a first round of surgery in Santo Domingo late on Sunday before being flown the following day to Boston's Massachusetts General Hospital, where he underwent more surgery. "Garcia was charged Tuesday with being an accomplice to the murder", reports Fox.
