Photos provided by the Dominican Republic National Police, June 12, 2019 show the suspects detained in connection with the shooting of former Red Sox star David Ortiz in Santo Domingo, Dominican Republic.
Prosecutors have charged eight men and one woman as accomplices. But prosecutors say witness statements and video footage place Garcia with the other suspects the day before the shooting and shortly before the attack on Sunday.
Although Eduardo Nunez is happy to hear that his friend and compatriot David Ortiz is expected to make a full recovery, the Boston Red Sox infielder is "embarrassed" by the recent shooting of Big Papi in the Dominican Republic, according to ESPN's Marly Rivera. Bottom row from left, Polfirio Allende Dechamps Vazquez, aka The Kid; Luis Alfredo Rivas Clase (who remained at-large Wednesday), aka The Surgeon; and Reynaldo Rodriguez Valenzuela, aka The Chinaman.
The victim, who was shot in the groin but survived, told authorities that Rivas-Clase had threatened to kill him several days earlier if he did not leave town, said Reading's deputy police chief, Osborne Robinson.
Pennsylvania authorities have released a mug shot of Rivas-Clase that strongly resembles the suspect in an image provided by Dominican authorities, who provided the same name but without the hyphen listed in USA court documents.
The nine suspects were rushed into the building after being walked from a police pickup truck that was heavily guarded by armed police officers.More news: Hundreds arrested in Moscow protest against police impunity and corruption

"Since this individual would be subject to charges in the Dominican Republic, the chance of us getting him back is frankly far-fetched, " Adams told The Associated Press.
Rivas-Clase separately faces charges stemming from an October traffic stop in Reading. Bail was set at $10,000, and records show bond was posted on November 29.
But Rivas-Clase skipped bail and was subsequently declared a fugitive, according to an online docket. His attorney in that case did not immediately return a message, while court records do not list an attorney in the attempted homicide case. "He always advocates for the best for the Dominican Republic".
The man, Nisdean Mirabal, said his son, Oliver Moisés Mirabal Acosta, cut all ties with his family when he joined the notorious street gang.
The ambush occurred Sunday night at a restaurant in Santo Domingo.
The video shows Ferreira Cruz saying through his jail cell window to journalists, "It wasn't David" and "I got confused by his clothing". "What matters is the investigation and what he said in the interrogation". His postseason heroics helped Boston capture its first World Series title in 86 years in 2004, when he was the Most Valuable Player of the American League Championship Series as the Red Sox overcame a 3-0 series deficit to the New York Yankees in seven games. He maintains a home in Weston, on the outskirts of Boston.
