Bong Revilla's younger brother killed

Ram Bautista Revilla, a budding actor and the half-brother of Senator Ramon “Bong” Revilla Jr., was killed in his home in Parañaque City before midnight on Friday.
This was confirmed by the senator himself in an interview with dzMM.
 According to Revilla, his brother was stabbed and shot to death. This was corroborated by Police Officer 2 Francisco Bukid, the first to arrive at the crime scene, in a separate interview with the same radio station.
“Maraming saksak sa likod at ulo, iba’t-ibang parte ng katawan at saka sabi may isa daw tama ng bala,” said Bukid.
Police recovered an empty shell of .45 calibre gun from the crime scene.
Revilla added in the same interview that the unidentified assailant also stabbed and shot his brother’s girlfriend, identified as 22-year-old Janelle Manahan, also an actress.
"May tama sa panga but I think she's [going to be] okay," Revilla said.
Manahan is now under observation at the Asian Hospital in Muntinlupa City an abscbnnews.com report said.
Bukid said the wounded Manahan was the one who reported the incident to the police.
“Na-receive namin ‘yung tawag 11:55 p.m. more or less 11:45 p.m. nangyari ‘yung insidente. Ang sabi niya, naka-bonnet daw dalawang tao,” said he.
Another sibling, Ramona Revilla, who was allegedly in the house when the incident happened, was taken hostage by the suspects but was dropped off in front of a mall an hour later.
“Nakuha sa Las Piñas. Under shock pa kaya ‘di pa siya makausap,” said Bukid.
The same abscbnnews.com report said that Revilla took custody of his half-sister for “security reasons.” Aside from her, four other people who live in the house, including three house helps, are now being questioned by police.
Revilla vowed to seek justice for his brother.
"Wala akong alam na may kagalit ito. Ang alam ko, gusto niya...nagaambisyon siya na tumakbo na konsehal sa bayan ng Imus," said he in an article in PEP.
"Mabait na tao ito, wala akong masabing masama."
Revilla said the 22-year-old was his father's "favorite" child. He said he still does not know how to break the news to his father given the latter's health. The former senator is 84 years old.
Ram is a son of former Senator Ramon Revilla Sr. with Genelyn Magsaysay. He was a talent of GMA Artist Center, appearing in the series“Kamandag” in 2007. He was introduced to the public via “Anak Ka ng Tatay Mo” in  2004. He was also in “Exodus” (2005) and “Resiklo” (2007). Among his last projects was a minor role in ABS –CBN’s “Tonyong Bayawak.”
