Former boxing champion Hector "Macho" Camacho is clinging to life today after being shot in the face while sitting in a car Tuesday outside of San Juan, Puerto Rico. Another man in the driver's seat of the Ford Mustang, identified as Adrian Alberto Mojica Moreno, 49, of Toa Baja, died in the attack.

 

Police say at least one gunman opened fire on Camacho and Moreno from a passing vehicle. The bullet that struck Camacho in the jaw exited his head and lodged in his right shoulder, fracturing two vertebrae.

 

The 50-year old Camacho went into cardiac arrest around 4:15 a.m. this morning, but doctors at the trauma center in San Juan were able to revive him.

 

"He went into cardiac arrest. The doctors were able to get his heart started again with the medicine, and we are maintaining his blood pressure and pulse stable medically right now to see whether during this morning, afternoon or evening we see a positive change," Centro Medico director Dr. Ernesto Torres told reporters during a 7 a.m. media briefing this morning. "The situation with 'Macho' is very delicate. The prognosis is not good."

Former manager Ismael Leandry told The Associated Press that hospital officials were waiting on Camacho's mother to arrive from the U.S. mainland to decide whether or not to take him off of life support.

 

However, others remained optimistic.

 

"This guy is a cat with nine lives. He's been through so much," Camacho representative Steve Tannenbaum said. "If anybody can pull through it will be him."

 

ESPN is reporting that detective Alex Diaz said that Mojica Moreno had nine bags of cocaine in his possession with a 10th bag open in the Ford Mustang, which was registered to him.

 

Camacho had a boxing record of 79 wins and 6 losses, with 3 draws. He is a former WBC Super Featherweight Champion, a WBC Lightweight Champion and WBO Light Welterweight Champion.

 

**UPDATE** November 22

 

Fox News Latino is reporting that Hector Camacho has died from wounds suffered in a drive-by shooting Tuesday in Bayamon, near San Juan, Puerto Rico. Camacho was 50 years old.

 

The family is waiting for Hector's son - also named Hector Camacho - to arrive on the island in the coming hours from New York to remove the former boxing champion from an artificial respirator.

Camacho's father has requested that his son's organs be donated.


Rest in peace Hector.

"Her mom failed miserably. Parents should know better than letting their teenage daughter talk to some unknown adult freaks on the web. At least monitor your child's computer, install a f*cking keylogger or something."
