(Reuters) - David Ortiz, a retired Red Sox star, took a few steps on Tuesday in his Boston hospital room after surgery for a gunshot wound he suffered in the Dominican Republic, media reported.

A second suspect was arrested Tuesday evening in connection with the shooting, the Boston Globe and other media reported, citing unnamed sources. It wasn’t known whether the second person was the shooter police were looking for.

“He is stable, awake, and resting comfortably this morning,” Ortiz’s wife, Tiffany Ortiz, said in a statement Tuesday. Ortiz, 43, was expected to remain in the intensive care unit at the hospital for the next few days, she said.

He was shot in the torso on Sunday evening at a nightclub in Santo Domingo, the capital of his native Dominican Republic. His friend Jhoel López, a television host, was also wounded in the shooting.

Police there have arrested two suspects. One was identified as Eddy Vladimir Féliz García, who was beaten by bystanders at the scene.
