@Trecee... Lets just say its retaliation. Go back into TMZ archives and you'll see where this began. I'll just leave it at that. He died a couple of hours ago.

Truth    

I used to have an apartment in the ESJ towers in San Juan right next to Hector's apartment. Hector would go to the night club in the El San Juan hotel downstairs and was a pretty nice guy. Even sent over a bottle for me and my girlfriend. Puerto Rico is a beautiful island with some really great people, but there are also some really bad people and you can get shot in a second for messing with the wrong person. I mind my own business and treat everyone with respect and have never had a problem.

I just read that he is in critical but stable condition. Also Wikipedia changed back to him still being alive.

We all have problems , demons , and addictions , that is what makes us human . But he still has or had a mother and a father , a family or friend. The guy is dying or dead . Boxer or not my thoughts and wishes are with him.
