Philippine police said on Friday a gunman who fired shots inside an entertainment resort and casino in the capital, Manila, had committed suicide by setting himself alight.

"Our assessment is he burned himself. He committed suicide," Oscar Albayalde, chief of the Manila police office, said in a radio interview.

The gunman burst into the casino, fired shots and set gaming tables alight in Resorts World Manila early on Friday, sowing panic in a country on high alert after martial law was declared in the south, but police said the motive was likely robbery.
