Ali Peek, the Man Mountain, TnT’s center was shot on the neck yesterday evening at the RFM Gym parking lot.
The 3rd overall pick in the 1998 draft was coming from their team workout at the RFM Gym when the gunman shot him from behind. The bullet hit Peek’s neck, actually it was near his spine. Fortunately, the bullet did not hit his spine which could lead to paralyses.
Manny V. Pangilinan, TnT’s owner said that he would award P500,000 to the one who could give information that could lead to the suspect. There is a bullet that is still trapped on Ali Peek’s neck, and it will require surgery for it to be removed.
This is how strong Ali Peek is, even a bullet near his spine cannot put him down.
Ali Peek is in a stable condition and is confined at Medical City. Ali, our thoughts and prayers go out to you. You’ll pull through this we all know that.
The Man Mountain is here to stay. Enough said.
