Cavite Vice Governor Jolo Revilla was rushed to the hospital Saturday after sustaining a gunshot wound to the chest.

According to Clifford Elorde, media officer of Senator Bong Revilla, the younger Revilla sustained the gunshot wound at around 9 a.m. inside his father's house, which he frequently visits.

Cavite 2nd District Rep. Lani Mercado's talent manager, Lolit Solis, said Revilla's gunshot appeared to be "self-inflicted."

Solis, in a phone interview with ABS-CBN News' Mario Dumaual, noted that Revilla has been suffering from depression due to the recent events involving his father, Sen. Bong Revilla, including moves to transfer the detained lawmaker to a regular prison cell.

The senator is also beset by other problems such as the move to garnish his assets and the accusation that he sneaked out of his detention cell to drop by the birthday celebration of Senator Juan Ponce Enrile.
