'Too early to speculate' on gangland suggestion behind Russian banker death

Scotland Yard says it is "too early to speculate" on Russian reports that the attack could be a gangland hit linked to a murder attempt on another banker, Alexander Antonov, in Moscow.

The force's Trident command - which investigates gang shootings - is understood to have liaised with overseas counterparts in the hunt for the gunman behind the attack on Tuesday evening.
