Bayamon, Puerto Rico - On Saturday, "Macho" Camacho, 50, of Bayamon was removed from life supports and later died. On Thursday, Camacho a former three time world boxing champion was declared clinically brain dead around 10:00 a.m. and remained on life supports.
On Tuesday while Camacho was seating inside a parked Ford Mustang outside a bar in his hometown, he was fatally wounded in the face. Another man, Alberto Yamil Mojica Moreno, 49, who accompanied Camacho was also fatally shot by unknown gunmen, according to Puerto Rican Police. Moreno was Camacho's childhood friend and was a known drug user. He was previously convicted of cocaine charges.
