Doctors say famed Puerto Rican boxer Hector `Macho' Camacho is clinically ''brain dead'' after being shot in the face. Dr. Ernesto Torres said at a news conference Thursday that doctors are still performing tests on Camacho before meeting with his family, according to The New York Daily News. Torres had said late Wednesday that Camacho was showing irregular and intermittent brain activity. The 50-year-old Camacho was shot as he and a friend sat in a Ford Mustang parked outside a bar Tuesday night. Police spokesman Alex Diaz has said officers found nine small bags of cocaine in the friend's pocket, and a 10th bag open inside the car.
