Gomez, one of the "masterminds" behind the shooting, had a business relationship with Fernandez that turned sour after he blamed his cousin for getting him jailed, Dominican authorities said. Ortiz was enjoying a night out at a club when all of a sudden a bike pulled up and someone shot him from the back.
Ortiz was flown to Boston and remains hospitalized there after doctors in the Dominican Republic removed his gallbladder and part of his intestine. Authorities said last week they believed Gomez was living in the U.S.
Ortiz, 43, continues to recover from his injuries in a Boston hospital, having been moved out of the intensive care unit. He had been on the run in the United States since March for a major drug sting known as "Operation Wrecking Ball".
