A 20-year-old man who was gunned down on a front doorstep in Bethnal Green has been named.

Jordon Bari, who was a taekwondo expert and from Stratford, was pronounced dead at the scene.

He had been shot multiple times.

Police believed he was shot as he opened the front door to one of the flats in Florida Street at 8pm on Monday.

Two men, one aged 21 and the other 29, were arrested on suspicion of murder and have since been bailed.

His next of kin have been informed and a post-mortem examination will take place on Thursday.

I would appeal to anyone who was in the area around 8pm on Monday evening and saw anything suspicious in the vicinity of Florida Street to come forward and speak to police.

At this early stage we are still working to establish the reasons why this young man was killed - if you have any information that could help, please contact us.
