MANILA, Philippines (AP) — Philippine officials say a man has fatally shot seven people and wounded six before being shot dead by police in a town near the capital.
Cavite provincial Gov. Jonvic Remulla says the dead in Friday’s rampage in Kawit township, 16 kilometers (10 miles) south of Manila, included a pregnant woman and 7-year-old girl.
Remulla says the gunman was Ronald Bae. A radio report citing a doctor says Bae was 30.
Remulla says Bae was originally from Kawit and returned Wednesday after leaving his wife.
Radio reports citing neighbors say Bae was drinking beer at a store in Kawit late Thursday. He left but later returned and began the shooting spree in the surrounding neighborhood.
Police say they’re looking for a man who helped Bae reload his gun during the spree.
