(CNN)Hundreds of casino guests at a resort complex in Manila ran in a panic early Friday as the sounds of gunfire erupted and smoke from a fire filled the room.

  • Suspect set himself alight in resort hotel room, police said.
  • Only one suspect was involved in the incident, contrary to early reports.
  • People jumped from windows to escape gunman who started firing in casino.
  • Reports of injuries as people pushed to get out of the building.
