This news coming out from the Philippines adds to another gruesome acts of murder along with Filipino-Canadian film critic Alexis Tioseco killed in QC home early this month. Mark Reyes aka Bam Reyes who was known as a club promoter and facebook celebrity was shot seven times and killed around 5:00am on September 15th, 2009. These are incidents we would expect in America, but crimes and murders like this seem to be more common in Philippine news.

From The Wutz Up in the Philippines!:

Bam Reyes as known to over 1000+ friends on Facebook whose real name is Mark Reyes was shot seven times and killed around 5:00am on September 15th, 2009.

Mark Reyes was well known in the Manila Clubbing scene and worked hard making a name for himself. You may have seen him at work, promoting at Fiama on Monday, Wednesday, or Friday nights. **His crew has asked their names to be removed.

Mark Reyes and crew also promoted the new club Bureau at A Venue in North Makati Avenue. Their nights were Thursdays and Saturdays.

If you weren’t part of the Manila clubbing scene and his face still is recognizable then you may have seen him in one of many different commercials.

Mark Reyes was more than just a promoter, he was also a very talented athlete. He played numerous positions on the flag football team known as the Young Guns. His speed and agility made him one tough competitor even though he would be playing with only a few hours of (or absolutely no) sleep. Having worked the night before for Fiama Fresh Fridays.

Details of the murder are still under investigation, will post additional information when it’s publicly released.

**Update 9/15/2009 8:36PM**

Mark Reyes was not the only one shot this morning. He was apparently with his close friend and DJ ___ whose name we’ve been asked to keep confidential while he’s being treated at a hospital within Makati.
