A man believed to be a friend of convicted drugster Glenn Agliotti was shot dead at a wedding in Muldersdrift at the weekend, Gauteng police said today.

Captain Poen Muller said: “While he was on his way to his car after a wedding two unknown men shot at him.

He was critically wounded and died on the scene. His Rolex watch and R10 000 cash were stolen.”

Muller said the police were investigating robbery as a motive but did not exclude the possibility of another motive.

Chris Couremetis, in his 30s, was shot at the Cradle Restaurant in Muldersdrift, west of Johannesburg, on Sunday.

No other guests were targeted or injured.

Agliotti, who is currently on trial for the murder of mining magnate Brett Kebble, tweeted on the social networking site twitter about the shooting yesterday.

Agliotti tweeted: “A good friend of mine was gunned down at Cradle of Human Kind yesterday [Sunday] at a wedding. Pay respect and say a prayer for Chris Grazie.”
