Video from Manila resort attack shows gunman setting fire to casino

New video footage shows gunman in deadly Manila attack setting fire to casino

While local Philippine officials continue to investigate the attack that killed at least 36, newly released video indicates that the gunman may have acted alone, according to police.

Manila police chief Oscar Albayalde said the security footage of the suspect in the attack indicated a clear motive, as the gunman headed straight for a storage room in the back of the casino that contained poker chips.

The suspect, who has not been identified by police, was found dead after he set himself on fire, according to police.

On Saturday, police said they are questioning a taxi driver who may have details about the suspect.

However, Philippine National Police Chief Ronald dela Rosa previously denied reports that the incident is linked to ISIS.

The U.S. Department of State offered its condolences to the victims and families who were affected by the attack.
