Western Cape police are calling for the public’s assistance in the arrest of a man wanted in connection with a murder at Angelo’s Pizza Place in Blackheath last month.

Police spokesperson Lieutenant Colonel Andre Traut revealed that a man entered the pizza place just after 09:00 on Thursday and found the 25-year-old shop owner in the restaurant.

"While the shop owner, Angelo Nunes, was alone inside the shop, the suspect took out a firearm and fired several shots, fatally wounding him," said Traut.

"Through video footage, it can be seen how the suspect fled the scene with a second suspect who was waiting for him on a motorbike."

A murder case was opened by police for further investigation.

Traut revealed that nothing was taken from the store or the deceased. The motorbike, used as a getaway vehicle, was later recovered on the N2 highway near to Nyanga.
