Indebted gambler behind Philippines casino attack: policeBy Karen Lema MANILA (Reuters) – Philippine police on Sunday identified the gunman behind an attack on a casino that killed 36 people as a heavily indebted local man addicted to gambling, ruling out any involvement by Islamic militants. The gunman was named as Jessie Javier Carlos, a 42-year old Filipino, who stormed the casino in Manila on Friday, setting gaming tables alight and killing dozens of people who suffocated in thick smoke. Carlos, whom police described as a “high-roller”, killed himself in a hotel room after being shot and wounded by security officers at casino, police said.
