Multiple suspects have been arrested in connection with the shooting, and one of the men was even attacked by a nearby crowd while trying to escape after the incident.
Chief of police Ney A. Bautista said Ortiz's attempted killers took a payment of 400,000 Dominican pesos, or around $7,800.
The alleged coordinator of the attack was also among those in custody, said Dominican National Police Maj.
Prosecutors said surveillance video shows two men talking with other people in a gray Hyundai Accent near the bar before the shooting, but authorities in the Dominican Republic have not confirmed that the men are Garcia and Martinez Perez, reported NBC News.
The motorcyclist, Eddy Vladimir Féliz Garcia, who had a 2017 arrest for drug possession, was one of several people in custody as of Tuesday afternoon, a law-enforcement official told The Associated Press on condition of anonymity because the official was not authorized to release details of the investigation.

The document also revealed ineptitude, saying Feliz Garcia was captured after he skidded and fell off his bike as the pair tried to flee. He was beaten bloody by enraged fans of Ortiz before they turned him over to the police.
His lawyer and his mother insist he's innocent of any wrongdoing, asserting he's a motorcycle taxi driver who unwittingly picked up the gunman as a fare and drove him to the crime scene without knowing his intentions.
"He didn't know what they were going to do".
Ortiz is recovering from a gunshot wound he suffered Sunday night in the Dominican Republic. "He's a fan of David's", the attorney, Deivi Solano, said Tuesday.
