CCTV footage shows the bloody rampage second by second as it takes place inside the 7-Eleven at Enmore, in Sydney’s inner west, in the early hours of Saturday morning.
It is 2.19am and a blonde 24-year-old strolls casually into the store carrying an axe.
She is wearing black shorts, a dark singlet top, black sandshoes and, in her right hand, a long-handled black and red axe.
The 7-Eleven, which sits at the rear of a service station on busy Stanmore Road, is lit up and has a customer waiting at the cash register.
Sharon Hacker, 43, who has distinctive long coloured dreadlocks is paying for milk.
After strolling in, the young woman who police later allege is Evie Amati, transfers the axe to her left hand and disappears down the first aisle of the shop.
At the cash register, Ms Hacker fiddles with her handbag and at 2.19:56 a second customer, Benjamin Rimmer emerges from an aisle with a meat pie to stand in line behind Ms Hacker.
Mr Rimmer, 32, appears to smile and gesture at someone outside the CCTV lens.
At 12 seconds past 2.20am, the young woman walks into view. She holds the head of the axe in both hands, with its long handle protruding to her left, and has what appears to be a knife in her back pocket.
Covered in tattoos, her blonde hair thick and matted, the woman chats casually for several seconds with Mr Rimmer, who at one point touches the axe and appears to make a joke.
