According to doctors, Camacho’s injuries are extensive.  One of the bullets hit him in the jaw and exited out the back of his head and later lodged itself in his right shoulder. The possibility of him being paralyzed is good because two of his vertebrae were damaged.  Centro Medico director Dr. Ernesto Torres told reporters this morning, “The situation with ‘Macho’ is very delicate.  The prognosis is not good.  He 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.”

Police are trying to find out whether this was a random act of violence or an intentional hit. The shooting is currently under investigation and as of now no arrests have been made.
