JOHANNESBURG - Gauteng police have launched a man hunt for a man who was involved in the murder of an employee at the Wombles Steakhouse Restaurant in Bryanston, north of Johannesburg.

It’s understood two men carrying a knife and a firearm stormed into the restaurant on Saturday while the owner and a worker were unpacking goods.

The employee was shot in the upper body and died on the scene, while the owner was stabbed and rushed to a nearby hospital.

The police’s Lungelo Dlamini says the man with the firearm was arrested while he was trying to flee but the other man is still on the loose.
