Was hector living a life where this shooting was bound to happen? Or was Hector just an innocent victim of a random drive by assassination attempt on the road by bad luck? something smells fishy here.

Tragic news, sad thing is we're use to hearing about stuff like this in boxing too often.

You always do hope that these troubled celebrities can find some peace in their older years. Prayers to him and his family..Machito Way will be full of candles and flowers tomorrow regardless of the outcome.
