Photos: Hector Camacho's Memorial and Wake in PR

SAN JUAN, Puerto Rico - Family, fans and fellow boxers said goodbye Tuesday to Hector "Macho" Camacho at a memorial and wake.

Camacho was shot Nov. 20 while sitting in a parked car with a friend outside a bar in Bayamon, his hometown. The friend died at the scene and the boxer three days later after doctors removed him from life support. Police have said they have suspects but have not yet arrested anyone for the shooting.

Camacho, who was 50 when he died, left Puerto Rico as a child and moved to New York. He went on to win super lightweight, lightweight and junior welterweight world titles in the 1980s and fought high-profile bouts against Felix Trinidad, Oscar De La Hoya, Julio Cesar Chavez and Sugar Ray Leonard.
