BRUSSELS, BELGIUM (CNN) - Police in Belgium have released images of the suspected gunman in Saturday's deadly shooting at the Jewish museum in Brussels.

A manhunt is underway.

A video shows the suspect enter the Brussels Jewish museum on Saturday before taking an automatic rifle from his bag and spraying tourists and workers with bullets.

His face, even on CCTV video shot as he calmly walks to and from the museum, is never clear, covered by a hat.

He is on the run, and the nation is told to help find him fast.

"We ask for collaboration from everybody, the cooperation of the media, and also from the people of Belgium, Brussels, to look at these images and look at them carefully," said Ine Van Wymersch with the Prosecutor's Office.

Officials said they cannot confirm a motive for the attack but suspect it was anti-Semitic. They said the gunman killed two people inside the museum and two near the entrance. All were shot in the head and neck, according to authorities.

Outside the museum, floral tributes arrived for those brutally shot down.

Among the victims is a Jewish couple in their 50s vacationing from their home in Israel. A French citizen is also among the dead. A Belgian worker at the museum was also shot at the popular tourist attraction.

Police are concerned the suspect could strike again.

"Today each Belgian citizen is concerned because this guy is capable of doing anything," said Joel Rubinfeld, president of the Belgium League against Anti-Semitisim.

Officials are in a race against time. Aside from a few videos of him, they admit they have few other details in their hunt for the killer.
