Restaurant where fatal robbery happened gets new name, new security

Posted: Updated:

After a deadly shooting that killed a worker at a Pine Hills, family-owned Chinese restaurant, the eatery now has a new name, new security measures, and many of the same loyal customers who are happy to see it back.

"We're glad to have it open back because cause it's really good food, so you know everybody likes the good food," said customer Mercedes Noble.

Hungry customers were happy to walk back through the doors of China Wok, now renamed China Chef after a robbery that ended tragically when 53-year-old Ying Jie Sun, a worker there was shot and killed when a masked man came in the restaurant armed with a gun.

"She was so nice and warm, lovely lady," Noble said.

The biggest difference in the restaurant since it re-opened is a large wrought iron gate that surrounds the counter, allowing workers to  open and close it when necessary, we also counted at least three different cameras up front, and a TV to view the surveillance video.

"It was really tragic what happened, but I hope it really does help," Noble said.

Orange County deputies have named two persons of interest in the case that they say may have information about the September shooting, but no arrest have been made, if you have any information they're asking you to call Crimeline.
