In an incident that sounds as if it was taken out of a movie script, beauty queen Maria Susana Flores Gamez was gunned down Saturday in a shootout between members of a drug cartel and military patrolmen.

According to The Associated Press, Gamez was traveling with the former group when guns were drawn. An assault rifle was discovered near her body.

"She was with the gang of criminals, but we cannot say whether she participated in the shootout," says state prosecutor Marco Antonio Higuera. "That's what we're going to have to investigate."

Larry Hagman, a veteran actor best known for his role as J.R. Ewing on Dallas, has passed away. He was 81.

The star created the role on the original series and reprised it last year when TNT rebooted the popular drama. He announced in the summer of 2011 that he was being treated for cancer, and then followed that up a few months ago by telling the world he was in "remission."

But he lost his battle yesterday at Medical City Dallas.

Hagman was “a giant, a larger-than-life personality whose iconic performance as J.R. Ewing will endure as one of the most indelible in entertainment history. He truly loved portraying this globally recognized character, and he leaves a legacy of entertainment, generosity and grace.”

He is survived by his wife of 58 years; two kids; and five grandchildren.

Our thoughts go out to Hagman's loved ones.

Hector Camacho, a former Lightweight and Welterweight boxing champion, is expected to pass away this week from injuries suffered in a shooting on Tuesday. His family has announced will soon take the 50-year old off life support.


The Puerto Rican native, who compiled a lifetime record of 79-6-3, was the passenger in a car when another vehicle pulled up aside him and a friend, firing shots that killed the driver in Camacho's car and fatally wounding the athlete.

He was hit in the neck and face and suffered a cardiac arrest soon after the incident, which many believe was drug-related after bags of cocaine were found in the victims' vehicle, according to TMZ sources.

Camacho was declared brain dead on Wednesday afternoon and funeral services will reportedly be held in either Puerto Rico or New York.
