CCTV footage of the Manila casino shooting

Philippine police questioning driver in casino attack probe Philippines' Duterte says Islamic State not behind casino attack

The lone gunman was identified as Jessie Carlos, 42 years old, said National Capital Region Police Office (NCRPO) Director Oscar Albayalde in a press conference at the Remington Hotel - part of the Resorts World complex - on Sunday.

The gunman fled to an adjoining hotel and killed himself.

Albayalde said the man was Jessie Carlos, 43, a Catholic with three children from Manila who had been banned from all casinos in April following a request from his family because of a gambling addiction. Carlos' distraught mother, Teodora, wept and asked for forgiveness.

A gunman walks away after setting fire to a gambling table in the Resorts World Manila resort.

The video footage shown to reporters Saturday appears to bolster the government's case that this was a botched robbery by a lone attacker with no known link to terrorism.

"We must draw up a clear and better plan to secure Metro Manila and other urban centres from IS-linked groups that we already know will attempt to kill and maim in pursuit of their jihadist ideology", Mr Alvarez said.

In 2014, Philippine newspapers had reported that Carlos was sacked from his job at the government's Finance Department "for grave misconduct and neglect of duty" because he failed to disclose that he owned a Manila house, a Toyota SUV and other business interests - an annual requirement for government officials and employees.

The victims died of suffocation from smoke from the fire, police said.

Despite ongoing ISIS-affiliated militant activity in the southern Philippines island of Mindanao, authorities ruled out terrorism as the motive for the attack. "The work of the ISIS is more cruel and brutal".


Those concerns escalated when militants flying black IS flags rampaged through the Philippines' main Islamic city in the south almost two weeks ago, triggering clashes that are still continuing and have left roughly 200 people dead.

Dela Rosa also said the gunman had not shot anyone, but Resorts World reported one of its security guards had suffered a gunshot wound. His M4 rifle was hidden in a backpack, in which he also had bottles of gasoline or kerosene. As if knowing exactly where to go, the CCTV footage shows Carlos opening the right doors.

The Islamic State in Iraq and Syria (ISIS) had claimed responsibility for the attack, but police insisted that all evidence disproved this.

The suspect torched gaming tables, slot machines and carpets before going to the storage room where casino chips were kept.

The gunman arrived alone at the Manila resort by taxi.

When the security footage begins, it shows the man entering the complex at a taxi drop-off zone with no weapon visible.

He was later found dead on the fifth floor of a hotel connected to the complex, the 38th fatality of the night.

Albayalde said Carlos had a bank account with an outstanding debt of P4 million, and several other non-bank related debt.
