SANTO DOMINGO, Dominican Republic (AP) Dominican prosecutors say witnesses and security camera footage indicate that the attempt to kill former Red Sox star David Ortiz was carried out by two men on a motorcycle and two other groups of people in cars that staked out Ortiz as he chatted at a bar on Sunday night.

The details contained in a court document obtained by The Associated Press on Wednesday reveal a new level of sophistication in the attack.

A lawyer for the driver of the motorcycle that was carrying the shooter says his client is innocent and had no idea his passenger was going to commit a crime.

Ortiz is recovering from his wounds in intensive care in Boston.
