An apparently underworld member gunned down another yakuza in a crowded Denny’s eatery in Togane, Chiba Prefecture, and then fled, police said.

The shooter, thought to be a gangster in his 60s, remains at large. The victim, Yoshiaki Furukawa, 62, from Kujyukuri, also apparently a yakuza, was shot in the chest. The gunman fled by car from the Denny’s Togane Bypass outlet at around 10:05 a.m.
