Chinese national kills compatriot in Philippines—police


MANILA, Philippines — A Chinese man killed a compatriot and wounded another in a shooting rampage at a luxury casino hotel in Pampanga, police said Monday.

The gunman, Wang Yang Zhen, 48, was arrested immediately after the shooting at a hotel room inside the Fontana Leisure Park on Sunday, and police said the motive for the attack appeared to be a dispute over money.

"There was a scuffle before the shooting. The victims were rushed to hospital but one of them was already dead upon arrival," city police chief Senior Superintendent Danilo Bautista said.

The leisure park is located at Clark Field, a former US air base that has been converted into an economic zone about 80 kilometers (50 miles) north of Manila.

Bautista said no other details about the gunman and the two male victims were available, and no official at the Chinese embassy in Manila was immediately available to comment.


Cancellations are expected to arrive for company and social events as concerns heighten about Fontana's guests mix.  Many are concerned that the guests from China and Macau may include underground elements that threaten the security of the resort and the safety of guests that include families with small children also.
