Boxing great Hector 'Macho' Camacho shot in the neck
It was unclear if they were targeted or simply caught in a random act of violence.
Television images and photographs circulated on Twitter showed the ex-boxer on a hospital gurney, with an oxygen mask and tubes, covered by blood-soaked covers. It said he was unconscious.
Torres said Camacho's heart stopped at 4:15 am (1345 IST).
"We were able to pull him back with drugs. We gave him drugs and his heart started beating again," he said, adding that neurologists said they "cannot do anything for him."
"This is a process and we have to wait for two different indicators to declare brain death," he added.
Camacho was one of the most colourful boxers of the 1980s.
