Police issue CCTV image of suspect in Isle of Dogs Russian banker shooting

Detectives investigating the attempted murder of 45-year-old Russian banker German Gorbuntsov have issued CCTV stills of the suspect they’re hunting.

The stills show the gunman moments after last month’s shooting on the Isle of Dogs, according to Scotland Yard today.

He is seen near Canary Wharf carrying a bag at 7.24pm on Tuesday, March 20—moments after the shooting—walking along Manilla Street, towards Marsh Wall. Police later discovered a gun, hooded top and bag nearby.

Det Chief Insp Russell Taylor from the Met’s Homicide and Serious Crime Command, leading the investigation, said: “We are continuing to examine CCTV footage and are keen to speak to anyone who may have information about the shooting or who may have seen the man taking off a dark hooded top or leaving a bag.”

Detectives want to contact anyone passing through Byng Street where the shooting occurred at the entrance to Mr Gorbuntsov’s apartment block on March 20, especially if they saw anything suspicious in the area.
