UPDATE! Hector Camacho is in ‘very, very, very, very critical’ condition, having suffered a cardiac arrest after getting shot in the face on Nov. 20.
Hector “Macho” Camacho was tragically shot in the face on Tuesday Nov. 20 while sitting in a car outside the Puerto Rican capital.
Doctors say Hector, 50, is in critical condition, and “the prognosis is not good.”
Adrian Mojica Moreno, Hector’s childhood friend, 49, who was also in the vehicle, was also shot after an unknown gunman opened fire in the city of Bayamon, according to a statement from the police. Adrian died on the scene.
Hector was rushed to Centro Medico, the trauma center in San Juan, where he was in critical but stable condition. The bullet apparently struck him in the jaw, but exited his head and lodged itself in his right shoulder and fracture two vertebrae, Dr. Ernesto Torres, the hospital director said.
“Camacho’s condition is extremely delicate,” he told Telenoticias. “His physical condition will help him but we will see.”
No arrests have been made in the shooting, according to police.
Our thoughts are with Hector and his family at this difficult time. How sad.
UPDATE: The rep added, “[Camacho] went into cardiac arrest. The doctors were able to get his heart started again with the medicine and we are maintaining his blood pressure and pulse stable medically right now to see whether during this morning, afternoon or evening we see a positive change.”
