Police have released some of the closed circuit television footage from the murderous spree at a Be'er Sheva bank Monday that left five people dead, including the killer, Itamar Alon.

The footage shows Alon, wearing a wide-brimmed hat, speaking with one of the bank officials, leaving, and then returning, armed with a gun. He can be seen firing in the direction of the floor.

Further footage shows police slowly approaching the entrance. It is not clear if Alon was still alive at this point or if he had taken his life. They can then be seen dealing with the aftermath of the attack.

Alon murdered several bank employees after they refused his requests to allow him to withdraw money.
