JOHANNESBURG - Police on Friday launched a manhunt for three suspects who allegedly shot dead former Lions rugby player, Johan Kemp.

Kemp was shot several times in the upper body in the early hours of Thursday morning when burglars broke into his home in Fontainebleau.

The police's Lungelo Dlamini said Kemp’s wife, who was in a different room at the time of the attack, heard shots and went to the bedroom, where she found him dead.

Their two sons, aged two and four, were unharmed and their two dogs survived being stabbed.

Dlamini said the suspects took some personal possessions and the family vehicle before fleeing.

“The suspects took jewellery, cellphones, laptops, as well as a vehicle.”
