Sources said that Revilla is currently "in stable condition" and "will survive." He is currently being treated at the Asian Hospital and Medical Center in Muntinlupa City.

“He sustained a gun shot that went through his upper right chest. I don’t know how it happened,” Cavite Gov. Juanito Vicor Remulla told Inquirer.

11:00PM Update: According to a GMA "News TV Live", lawyer Raymond Fortun has said Revilla accidentally pulled the trigger of a gun that he was cleaning at their home in Ayala Alabang. Here's the video:

Fortun said Revilla will have to stay in the hospital for the next 48 to 72 hours.

Meanwhile, Revilla’s talent manager Lolit Solis told to media that Jolo was hit hard by his father’s detention over corruption charges in connection with the pork barrel scam. “Jolo idolizes Bong. Jolo lost a source of strength.”

Solis added in an interview on dzBB that "sad to say," the gunshot wound appears to be self-inflicted.

She also said that his rumored girlfriend Jodi Sta Maria quickly rushed to the hospital to be with Revilla.
