Following is the management’s official statement as of 3 p.m. of June 2:

It is with deep regrets that we confirm that there were 35 casualties in this tragic incident, of which 13 are employees and 22 are guests. The identities of two employees and four guests are still being validated as of this time.

We are doing our very best to inform the families of the victims. We are extending all forms of assistance to the affected next of kin. We are one in mourning with the families of those affected by this tragedy.

This is also a very difficult time for all of us here in Resorts World Manila. We consider our guests, patrons and our employees as our family.

Testimonies of responding members of Resorts World Manila’s security team confirm that they were able to shoot and wound the gunman that attacked Resorts World Manila in the early hours of June 02, 2017. Severe blood loss from the gunshot wound significantly slowed the assailant down and resulted to his holing up in a room where he took his own life.

We would like to extend our gratitude to our security team, particularly Mr. Bernard Cajigas, who also sustained a gunshot wound, and Mr. Petronio Kinol, Jr. We also commend the Philippine National Police and the Bureau of Fire Protection for their courage and efforts to contain the incident.

Finally, we would like to take this opportunity to refute claims circulating online that there were two assailants involved in the incident. We reiterate that there was only one gunman involved in this senseless attack.

On behalf of the victims’ families and loved ones, we request everyone to refrain from spreading hurtful speculation and false information.
