A gunman opened fire in a small Bank Hapoalim branch in Beersheba on Monday,
killing four people before taking his own life.
The shooter, identified
as 40-year-old Itamar Alon, had reportedly been turned down a day earlier by the
bank when he tried to extend his credit line, because of a NIS 6,000 debt. After
returning to the bank, he shot to death bank manager Avner Cohen and deputy
manager Meir Zeitoun, shooting both multiple times before killing customers Anat
Even-Haim and Idan Schnitzer Sabari.
