London: London police say they`re hunting a
gunman after an ex-Russian banker was shot and left critically
ill in an attempted assassination in east London.

Officers said today in a statement that German Gorbuntsov
is in a "critical, but stable" condition after he suffered
several gunshot wounds on Tuesday night outside an apartment
block on the Isle of Dogs, close to London`s Canary Wharf
financial district.

Police are seeking a white male seen fleeing the scene,
but declined to confirm reports that Gorbuntsov is in a coma.

Gorbuntsov`s lawyer Vadim Vedenin was quoted as telling
Russia`s Kommersant newspaper that the ex-banker had recently
supplied new information to an enquiry into an attempted 2009
slaying of another Russian banker.
