(CNN)The popular Filipino tourist site Resorts World Manila is on lockdown after reports of gunfire and explosions.

 

A masked gunman was on the second floor of one hotel, firing at guests, hotel employees fleeing the scene told CNN Philippines.

 

Heavily-armed SWAT officers wearing bulletproof vests and body armor descended on the scene, Camille Abadicio of CNN Philippines said.

 

Tikos Low said he was in the resort's casino, along with a few hundred other people, when the attack began. Low said he heard what sounded like an explosion.

"I could smell some kind of smoke that came from an explosive device," he said.

 

It was not immediately clear how many people may have been injured or killed.

/sigh.  These cowards strike the most vulnerable (i.e. soft targets) as usual.  :(
