Metro Manila (CNN Philippines, June 3) — The crime was carried out with virtually no hindrance from hotel security until the rampage happened.

A day after the tragic incident, the management of Resorts World Manila released the security camera video showing how the gunman went on a shooting spree and torched the casino area.

In a media briefing on Saturday, Resorts World Chief Security Officer Armeen Gomez detailed the management's official security report with the showing of the video.

The video supported previous accounts of what may have transpired. The gunman entered the building and was met by only one security detail.


The person went straight to the lobby and fired warning shots, then to the second floor where he torched gaming tables and slot machines.

He then grabbed ₱113.1 million worth of chips, which authorities said established the robbery angle.


After security personnel shot him, the gunman went to a room where he supposedly burned and shot himself.


Thirty-eight people, including the gunman, were killed in the incident.

The attacker evaded a police SWAT team but was shot and wounded by a security guard. Resorts World Manila Chief Operating Officer Stephen Reilly said the gunshot wound slowed down the gunman.

Metro Manila Police chief Oscar Albayalde said the suspect has not yet been identified but he said they are awaiting results of blood tests and DNA analysis.

Albayalde added they are also investigating the driver of the taxi that brought the gunman to the hotel casino.

He said evidence showed the victims had no gunshot wounds, as the footage showed the gunman did not fire at any staff or guest.

Albayalde said there’s no evidence pointing to the terrorism angle just yet.

Albayalde and Gomez insisted there was only one gunman.

While witnesses said the perpetrator looked and spoke like a foreigner, the taxi driver had reportedly said the gunman fluently spoke Filipino.
