Former three-division world champion Hector Camacho has been shot in the head in Bayamon, Puerto Rico, and early reports are that he has a minimal chance of survival. Primera Hora had the initial reports, but later it was reported that a bullet did not enter the brain, as was the initial belief.

Camacho, 50, was one of the most colorful and memorable boxing stars of the 1980s, and has fought as recently as 2010. He was reportedly shot in the face and neck in a car-to-car shooting tonight on Highway 167. Further reports from Primera Hora indicate that if he does survive, chances are he won't walk again.

Camacho has a career boxing record of 79-6-3 with 38 knockout wins, and over his career fought the likes of Roberto Duran, Oscar De La Hoya, Julio Cesar Chavez, Sugar Ray Leonard, Felix Trinidad, Ray Mancini, and Greg Haugen, among many others.

We'll be here all night to report on any developments in the story. Our best wishes go out to the family and loved ones, and of course to Hector "Macho" Camacho himself.
