UPDATE: After tests were conducted it was declared by Dr. Ernesto Torres that Camacho is brain dead.

Former world champion Hector "Macho" Camacho, 50-years-old, was in critical condition Wednesday after being shot in Bayamon, Puerto Rico on Tuesday night - with doctors and his family expected to wrestle with whether to take him off life support after his condition worsened.

Camacho was outside a bar in a parked Ford Mustang with a friend when he was shot in the face. The friend, identified as 49-year-old Adrian Mojica Moreno, was killed. Camacho was rushed to Centro Medico, where doctors initially said he was fortunate in that the bullet passed through his head and lodged in his shoulder. Torres did state that Camacho could be paralyzed from the shooting.

Doctors initially had said Camacho was expected to survive, but his condition worsened overnight and his heart stopped at one point, said Dr. Ernesto Torres, director of the Centro Medico trauma center in San Juan. After it was discovered that Camacho's brain activity was low, Torres said that two specialists will examine him to determine whether or not Camacho is brain dead. The specialists will then consult with other doctors and Camacho's mother, who was expected to arrive from New York, to discuss whether he should be removed from life support.

Who the hell shoots someone in the face without a motive? Was Macho affiliated with drugs? RIP Macho
