An unidentified gunman killed himself after opening fire at the casino of Resorts World Manila in Pasay City around midnight on Thursday.

"The lone gunman is dead. He burned himself inside a hotel room," Philippine National Police (PNP) Director General Ronald Dela Rosa told reporters.

Dismissing the shooting in the Resorts World Manila as a terror attack, Dela Rosa said the masked gunman who carried out the attack only tried to steal green chips from the casino.

"It's too early to tell but as far as we are concerned there was no indication the IS-affiliated militants were behind the shooting," he said.

"As far the PNP is concerned we cannot yet attribute this to terrorism. This is not an act of terrorism. As of this time we cannot really say if this is a terror act." >>
