The suspect, who was not immediately identified, entered the online casino along Meralco Avenue and drew out a cal-.38 revolver, radio dzBB's Rodil Vega reported Friday.
 
He declared a holdup and fired his gun, hitting and wounding gaming assistant Jamina Yunon, 21. Yunon was taken to a nearby hospital.

Umipig drew out his service pistol, fired at the suspect and hit him in the right part of the chest, killing him.
 
Investigators are still trying to identify the slain suspect, after failing to find any identification on him. –KG, GMA News
