POLICE IN Puerto Rico said former boxing champion Hector "Macho" Camacho Sr. had been shot and critically wounded Tuesday night in Bayamon, near San Juan.
The Associated Press reported that doctors and Camacho's spokesman said the former boxer was expected to survive.
Police said Camacho was shot in neck and face while in a car outside a bar. A second man in the car also was shot and killed but authorities said it is not clear what relationship, if any, Camacho had with the victim. The motive was unknown.
