Doctors in Puerto Rico declared famed Boxer Hector "Macho" Camacho critically brain dead today after he suffered a gunshot wound to the face earlier this week.

Two of Camacho's aunts said the family decided to wait two more days before removing him from life support.

He and a friend were just sitting in a car outside a liquor store in a San Juan suburb when the gunmen opened fire.

Camacho was hit in the jaw and the bullet fractured two vertebrae and lodged in his shoulder.

Three to four arteries that carry blood to the brain were also damaged by the bullet.

Camacho's friend, Adrian Coreno, was killed in the shooting.

No arrests have been made
