He held major championships in the super featherweight, lightweight and junior lightweight divisions, going on to win lesser titles in four more weight classes, becoming the first boxer to be recognized as a septuple champion. Camacho's son, Héctor Camacho Jr., is also a boxer. During his 30-year career, Camacho was known for his quickness in the ring, and his flamboyant style On November 20, 2012, around 7 p.m. AST, Camacho was shot once in the face while in Bayamón, Puerto Rico. Several news agencies reported that Camacho, 50, was seated in the passenger seat of a Ford Mustang when he was shot by unknown individuals from a passing car. The owner-driver of the car, friend, Adrian Mojica Moreno, a childhood friend of Camacho, was killed in the attack. According to El Nuevo Herald, Camacho was taken to San Pablo Hospital in Bayamón, where he was then reported to be in critical condition. Police said a chase took place and that the van from which the shots were fired was found in the area of Jardines de Cataño. There are conflicting reports, with an earlier claim that police arrested a suspect around 9 p.m. AST. At one point, doctors announced that Camacho was expected to survive but could be paralyzed, but after suffering a cardiac arrest during the night, they said his cerebral activity was very low.  The morning after the shooting, Rafael Rodríguez Mercado, rector of the Medical Sciences Campus, had confirmed to El Nuevo Día that Camacho was brain dead. "His full recovery would be a miracle, medically there is nothing more that can be done," confirmed Rodríguez Mercado. However, that same afternoon, Ernesto Torres, director of the hospital, informed that there was still "minimal, although irregular and intermittent" brain activity. The next morning, Torres said Camacho was "clinically brain dead". Police investigating the incident say they found nine small bags of cocaine in Mojica's possession, with a tenth bag open inside the car where Camacho was shot. On November 23, Camacho's mother Maria Matias announced plans to have her son taken off life support on November 24, after three more of his sons arrived in Puerto Rico to be with him. He was officially declared dead that following day.
