American-Filipino basketball star Ali Peek has allegedly been shot. This is one of those situations where Twitter seems to have got hold of news before anyone else, and it’s far from confirmed. But reports suggest he’s allegedly in a stable condition in hospital after some kind of incident.
Peek plays for the Talk ‘n Text Tropang Texters (TNT) in the Philippine Basketball Association (PBA) league. Also known as ‘Man Mountain’, he has been a professional player since the late 90’s and is a fan favourite.
There are no further details of the alleged incident so far and, knowing Twitter, it’s more than possible that it will turn out Peek is fine.
