Police in Puerto Rico say former boxing champion Hector "Macho" Camacho has been shot and critically wounded.

Camacho was shot in the face while in a car outside a bar in Bayamon, one of the cities that make up the San Juan metropolitan area. A statement from police in Bayamon said he was shot Tuesday night.

A second man also was shot and killed but authorities say it is not clear what relationship, if any, Camacho had with the other victim. The motive was unknown.

The 50-year-old former boxer was unconscious as he was taken to the trauma center at Centro Medico in San Juan. Hospital officials told reporters he was in serious condition.

Camacho won super lightweight, lightweight and junior welterweight world titles in the 1980s.
