MANILA, Philippines — A son of former Senator Ramon Revilla Sr. was killed in his home in Paranaque City shortly before midnight Friday, relatives and police said Saturday.

Actor Ram Revilla, 22, was pronounced dead on arrival early Saturday morning at the Parañaque General Hospital, his half-brother and Senator Ramon Revilla Jr. told reporters right after the incident.

Quoting initial police investigation, Revilla said Ram sustained multiple stab wounds on his body and a gunshot on his head.

In a separate interview early Saturday, Chief Superintendent Agrimero Cruz Jr., Philippine National Police spokesman, said that Ram was killed in the actor’s own house on President Avenue in Phase 6A in BF Homes by a group of armed men wearing bonnets at 11:55 p.m. Friday.

Ram was with his girlfriend, Janelle Manahan, and another unidentified female companion who went missing by the time the police arrived, said Sen. Revilla.

“Robbery was already ruled out because there nothing was taken in the house. I am still puzzled because I don’t know any enemies of Ram or anyone who hated him that much to kill him,” said Revilla.

He added that Manahan, who suffered a gunshot wound in her jaw, was immediately transferred from Parañaque Hospital to the Intensive Care Unit of the Asian Hospital and Medical Center in Muntinlupa City.

“I was informed she’s already out of danger,” Senator Revilla said.

Ram was the son of former Senator Ramon Revilla Sr. with Genelyn Magsaysay.

“He was my father’s favorite son. I don’t think we can tell him right away what happened to Ram,” said Revilla.

Revilla said he would do everything to catch the killers immediately.

Chief Inspector Jenny Tecson, spokesperson of the Southern Police District, said that an investigation was underway to determine the identities and motive of the suspects.

    Karma doesn’t exist. If it does, the world would’ve already been cleansed which is obviously not the case.

    Bad things that happen are either purely accidental or intentional. In this case, intentional. It may be an offshoot of something that he had done previously but definitely not karma.

    I don’t know Ram, his doings or undoings but I hope that he and his family gets justice. Same to the ladies he was with.

    It is not good  to be a senator nowadays.
    As if being senator is accompanied by tragedy.
    Just like Miriam Santiago whose son was killed by gun; Now ex senator Ramon and Bong son and kapatid.
    Anyway, SLN.

      Bakit magtatrabaho na si senator Bong Revilla, iiwanan na nya ang TV program nya? Senador pa ba siya? Akala ko full time na sa pagiging KAP sa tv.

    Peace and order is the worst in this part of Asia. What ever the motive is, they should not result to killings. We just witnessed a murder of priest in Mindanao, apprehension of juveniles with high power firearms in Quezon city, … The list goes on. It’s time to ban guns.

    Condolence to Revilla Family. Grabe talaga yung krimen ngayon, ang mga bata hindi na safe lumabas ng bahay ng walang kasama… Sana mabigyan ng justice kaagad ang nangyari ke Ram. Kc nakatingin lang yung mga gumawa nyan, nagmamatyag at posibleng ulitin nila sa iba pag hindi sila nahuli… Sabi nga ni FPJ sa pelikula: Pag buhay ang inutang, buhay din ang kabayaran… kaya lang since Christian tayo e mahirap yun… Sana mabigyan kaagad ng hustisya ang nangyaring yan.

    That’s how crime is in the Philippines! Too audacious! Not even the brother of a senator is spared. Justice will be served? It’s too late. The boy is already dead. It’s prevention that counts, not the solution.

    Nasaan na ang mga dating kristianong pilipino? Bakit karamihan ay isinuko ang kaluluwa sa mga demonyo? Karamihan ay naging materialistico, ganid, maramot, “ako-muna una” ugali ang iniisip. Inosenteng tao at pamilya sinisira. Ang Diyos ba ay huli na sa inyo? Kailan lang ay nagpadala ako ng maliit na package sa mail sa Maynila, nawala at nanakaw. Hindi natanggap ng disabled na pamangkin ko. Maawa naman kayo at have a pride sa inyong trabaho or mission sa buhay. Nasaan na mga kaluluwa ng mga dating faithful na Pilipino? Ano man ang gawin nyo sa mundong ito, maliit or malaki ay pagbabayaran. Ang pain na daranasin ay walang katapusan. Pamilya ni Revilla ay walang mission na masama kundi tumulong sa mga kababayan at ito ang naging kabayaran? Kung sakim ang pamilyang ito, they have the option to leave the Philippines, pero hindi, may good mission sila na kakaiba sa lahat. Baklt napakaraming crime sa Pilipinas? Dahil maluwag ang penalty diyan? Ang ginamit na baril ay 9MM, sino ang makaka afford ng 9MM, hindi pangkaraniwang tao lang ito. Kung may dating death penalty diyan, ibalik. Hindi matututo ang mga ito. Mga taong ito ay ipinanganak para pumatay at hindi nila deserve na manitiling buhay! Whoever did this, you won’t be at peace from now on, you just pissed-off a family real Cavitenian. May Ram rest in peace.  Looking at his facebook, the kid has better mission than most and that’s to help his fellowmen.

      9mm pistols aren’t so expensive that they can’t be bought by most people. You can buy one for as low as P13.5 K from a legal local gun manufacturer. The illegal “paltik” and stolen ones could go for much less.

      Almost anyone can afford to buy a gun.

      Those who buy legal guns though are not likely to become criminals by profession because their guns can be traced back to them. Real criminals will use stolen, smuggled, and unlicensed guns instead.

      I also don’t beleive that some people are born criminals.

      I have yet to see a two year old slaying another toddler for its milk bottle. Though I will accept that it is possible for some people to be genetically predisposed to sociopathic behavior, the environment still holds more sway in the shaping of a criminal.

      Lastly, you asked where Christian Filipinos are?

      Some have joined other religions, some will start holding a candle before any religious object that drips blood without even investigating it for fraud, some call upon Christian iideals then for capital punishment on the next breath.

      Some Filipinos called the execution of our countrymen in China for drug smuggling wrong… I hope these same people are not calling for a return of the death penalty, Then again, “balimbing” is a word common in our country.

    sa dami ng anak ni ramon revilla idagdag pa natin ang taglay niyang karga (kung totoo?) ay siguradong makakabawi sila sa mga gumawa nito, kaya huwag na nating pagtakhan kung may mga tapunan sa cavite sa mga susunod na araw.

     Kung tawadin dito sa amin, syorbol na itong tumira ke Ram. Parang death sentence kumbaga. Timbugin mo ba naman kapatid ni Panday at anak ni Nardo. Pati yong mga nangholdap sa mall sa Dasmarinas. Bilang na rin ang mga araw noon. Teritoryo ni Nardo yang ginulo nila. Di na nila pakinabangan yong  milyones na nkulimbat nila. Di nga lang marerekober ng pulis kahit mahuli pa ang mga holdaper.

    Iba talaga kapag kilala yung biktima,  kapag ordinaryo lang yan, kahit na chop chop na.   Walang papansin.

    tsk tsk tsk.   ganyan dito sa Pilipinas.  Cavite ?  Magulo at tapunan yang ng na sasalvage,
    Ang pagkakaalam ko si Sen Revilla ang nag author na alisin yung non bailable sa posssession of illegal gun.
    ayan ang masakit na katutuhanan, di ba Robin Padilla. ?
