As the search for Luis Alfredo Rivas-Clase aka “The Surgeon” continues with the suspect still at large, nine other suspects have been arrested for their involvement in the David Ortiz shooting last Sunday
As new footage shows the suspects being protected by armed police as they get escorted inside a police building, “The Surgeon” is still on the run while also being wanted in the United States for an attempted murder last year in Pennsylvania.

PERP WALK: New video shows armed police leading several suspects in the David Ortiz shooting into hearings in the Dominican Republic last night, with 10 people now facing charges and one — known as “The Surgeon” and also wanted in the U.S. for attempted murder — remaining on the run. #domincanrepublic #dr #davidortiz #ortiz #shooting #police #suspects #court #perp #walk #worldnewstonight
The Berks County Sheriff’s Office confirmed that they have been looking for Rivas-Clase since April of 2018, when he was identified as a suspect involved in the shooting of a man in Reading. Similar to Ortiz, that victim ultimately survived a bullet wound to the back, while it’s been alleged that Rivas-Clase conspired with another suspect to carry out the shooting.
Thus far, Dominican authorities have not confirmed who ordered the hit on Ortiz or why he was targeted.
But we think we know why.
