MOSCOW - Russian police have arrested a Moldovan man wanted for attempted murder in Romania in November and who is also suspected by London police of shooting a Russian banker in the British capital last spring.

Police arrested Vitali Proca, a 33-year-old from Moldova, in Moscow on Wednesday, the Russian Interior Ministry said in a statement. The arrest was confirmed by Interpol and Britain's Metropolitan Police.

According to Interpol, Proca allegedly gunned down his victim in a mob-style shooting in a Bucharest parking lot on Nov. 26 last year.

A source at the Metropolitan Police said it was aware of the arrest and had worked with other police forces to trace and arrest Proca, who is suspected of shooting exiled Russian banker German Gorbuntsov in east London last March.
