It happened this early Friday morning that several gunshots were heard at the Resorts World Manila. Initial reports stated a masked man fired his gun within the resort-casino premises and set an area on fire. While the turmoil brews, the resort-casino area has been put on lockdown.
Now, Philippine police say that the gunman has killed himself.
The unnamed suspect began firing shots and set a few gaming tables ablaze of the Resorts World Manila in the wee hours of Friday, June 2.
Local media reports said that the local police, fire trucks and a SWAT team responded to the attack.
Dela Rosa said that the lone gunman walked into one of the gambling rooms, fired his assault rifle at a big TV screen, and then poured gasoline on a gaming table and set it on fire. The police chief said the gunman then fired again at a stock room which contained gambling chips and filled his backpack with them, worth 113 million pesos ($2.3m or £1.7m). He then left the room and went upstairs to the hotel area of the complex.
