David Ortiz says he doesn’t know what might have led to attack

David Ortiz said he is still trying to mentally process the shooting at a Dominican nightclub that seriously injured him and doesn’t know what led to the attack.

The retired Red Sox slugger spoke to Univision in an interview posted online Friday, his first since being shot.

Ortiz dismissed speculation that he was a target and said he wasn’t involved in anything shady that would have led to an attack.

I don’t have enemies. I don’t know why anyone would want to do this to me,” he said.
