10:18:00 AM

Former Defense Secretary Angelo Reyes, who headed the military from 2001 to 2003 and was recently accused in a high-profile congressional hearing of pocketing money from the armed forces, died this morning after sustaining a gunshot wound in the chest in an apparent suicide attempt.

Health Secretary Enrique Ona said Reyes was brought to the Quirino Memorial Medical Center in Quezon City at 7:30 a.m. with a bullet wound in the left part of his chest and was pronounced dead at 8:32 a.m.

Reports said Reyes shot himself in front of his mother's grave at the Loyola Memorial Park in Marikina City. His wound reportedly came from a .45 caliber pistol.

Reyes visited his mother's tomb with 2 children and 2 aides at the Loyola Memorial Park in Marikina City early this morning before the apparent suicide. He asked his children and aides to leave him at the tomb and then a shot was heard according to eye witness.
