Following a shooting at the Brussels Jewish Museum on Saturday, Belgian police have released surveillance videos of the gunman in a call to the public to help identify the man, who remains at large, the AFP reports. An Israeli couple, a French citizen, and a Belgian museum worker fell victim to the gunman, who calmly and deliberately carried out the attack.

The videos show a man whose face is obscured by a baseball cap entering the building and pulling a Kalashnikov automatic rifle out of his bag before firing on the victims. The Israeli couple and French volunteer died on the spot, while the Belgian worker died from his wounds on June 6. Many believe it to be an anti-Semitic attack, though no group has claimed responsibility.
