SAN JUAN, Puerto Rico (AP) — Police in the Puerto Rican city of Bayamon say they found drugs inside the car in which former champion boxer Hector "Macho" Camacho was shot and critically wounded.

Police spokesman Alex Diaz says the man shot and killed with Camacho was in possession of nine small bags of cocaine. A 10th bag was open inside the car.

Camacho and friend Adrian Mojica Moreno were shot as they sat in the parked car. The car belonged to Mojica. No arrests have been made and police have not disclosed any possible motive.

Camacho was in critical condition Wednesday at the Centro Medico trauma center in San Juan.
