Puerto Rican boxing great Hector 'Macho' Camacho, shot in the face last week, was declared dead Saturday after being removed from a respirator, a doctor said.

Camacho, who was 50, suffered a heart attack overnight Friday and doctors later disconnected him from life support equipment, said Dr. Ernesto Torres at Centro Medico de Rio Piedras, where the boxer was admitted after being shot Tuesday.
