San Juan - Former champion boxer Hector "Macho" Camacho has been seriously wounded in a shooting outside the Puerto Rican capital, although doctors and his spokesperson say he is expected to survive.
At least one gunman opened fire on the 50-year-old Camacho and another man as they sat in a car in the city of Bayamon on Tuesday. The other man, whose relationship to the former boxer wasn't immediately known, was killed, according to a statement from police.
Camacho was rushed to Centro Medico, the trauma centre in San Juan, where he was in critical but stable condition, Dr. Ernesto Torres, the hospital director, told reporters.
The bullet apparently struck him in the jaw, exited his head and lodged in his right shoulder, fracturing two vertebrae, Torres said.
