New video released in the David Ortiz shooting

Authorities in the Dominican Republic have released new surveillance video from the shooting of Red Sox legend David Ortiz.

In the video, the 25-year-old alleged gunman, Rolfy Ferreyra Cruz, is seen walking up to the restaurant at point blank range and shooting Ortiz.

Six men so far have been arrested in a plot to murder the former baseball star.

A manhunt is still ongoing for a seventh suspect.

(SOUNDBITE) (Spanish) DOMINICAN REPUBLIC ATTORNEY GENERAL, JEAN ALAIN RODRIGUEZ, SAYING: "The Dominican government, the national police, and the Justice Department recognize the symbolism that David Ortiz represents, and the commitment we have that this case be solved completely." The gun used in the shooting has also been recovered by police.

Known as "Big Papi," Ortiz is still a hero in Boston for his role in three World Series championships.

He retired from Major League Baseball in 2016 after 14 seasons with the Red Sox as the team's designated hitter and first baseman.
