Resorts World Manila (RWM) has released a list of fatalities (see below) from the June 2 attack carried out by a suspected lone shooter at the casino hotel. Thirteen, two of whom are still unidentified, were RWM employees, while 22 were guests, with four still being identified. Reports said that most of the victims died due to suffocation from smoke inhalation after the gunman set gambling tables on fire.
According to Inquirer.net, four of the employees who died were young moms. Jellah Ramos Tabuena was a table games inspector, married with a child. Arvi Gavino was a card dealer and mom to two boys. Jessica Alindogan left a husband and a daughter. Lea Grace Mozo was married with two children. BJ Pagsibigan, 34 years old, was a father of two.
Among the guests, Pep.ph reported that one of the casualties, Eluterio Reyes, was the husband of actress Azenith Briones, known for her role in the 1980 film, Temptation Island. Azenith, who was buying food alone, escaped RWM by jumping from the second floor of the restaurant's kitchen. When ABS-CBN spoke with her about her experience, she didn't know yet that her husband was among those who died.
House Majority Leader Rodolfo Fariñas confirmed to reporters that one of the guests who died was Elizabeth Panlilio Gonzales, the wife of Pampanga Rep. Aurelio “Dong” Gonzales Jr. They have four children.
