Police named Itamar Alon as the suspect who stormed in to a Beersheba bank on Monday, killing four, taking one hostage and injuring another four before ending his own life. 

Channel 2 reported that Alon was in debt to the bank and had recently reached an agreement with it to return his debt in monthly installments of 500 shekels a month.
