Ram Revilla killed in shooting and stabbing incident

Ram Revilla, half-brother of Sen. Ramon “Bong” Revilla, was declared dead on arrival at the Paranaque Medical Center today past midnight after being shot and stabbed in his home in Paranaque City.

According to a report from ABS-CBN News, Bong told DZMM that his brother was shot and stabbed by a gunman who entered their house in BF Homes. Ram’s girlfriend, Janelle Manahan, sustained a gunshot wound and is under observation.

Ram, 22, is the son of former Senator Ramon Revilla Sr. and Genelyn Magsaysay. He is also an actor and has appeared in ABS-CBN’s “Tonyong Bayawak” and GMA’s “Kamandag.”

Bong cited a police report saying that Ram was gunned with a 9 mm or a .45 caliber gun and was stabbed.

No enemy

“Wala akong alam na may kagalit ito. Ang alam ko, gusto niya...nagaambisyon siya na tumakbo na konsehal sa bayan ng Imus," he said.

According to his Facebook page, Ram plans to run as councilor in Imus, Cavite. Bong described Ram as a kind person.

“Mabait na tao ito, wala akong masabing masama. Paborito ng daddy ko 'to,” he said.

Bong said  they don’t know how to break the news to their father, who is currently sick. Bong also noted that robbery is not the motive as nothing has been taken from the house.

"Sobra ang galit para gawin ito," Bong said. The Revilla family wants to seek justice for the heinous crime.

    Beyonce’s #Flawless image is embroiled in controversy once again. On Wednesday, a web site called The Beyonce World leaked 224 allegedly raw photos of the musician. The images showed Bey in full makeup for the 2013 L’Oreal ad campaign — but with the kinds of “imperfections” we all have — beauty marks, bumps, creases. In the wake of Cindy Crawford’s unretouched photos, the images have been praised by critics of a beauty industry that sets impossibly high standards, standards that Queen Bey …
