Police are looking for a motorcyclist and his pillion passenger over the murder of a man in his car.

Bogdan Paduret, 29, was shot in the head outside his home in Finchley, north London, on 27 November.

Police said the pillion passenger had shot four times into a car bringing Mr Paduret back home from his job as head doorman at the Mayfair Club.

No arrests have been made in what police described as a "cold-blooded murder".

A post-mortem examination gave the cause of death as a gunshot wound to the head.

Det Ch Insp Jacqueline Sebire said Mr Paduret, also known as Tony, had been very popular

She wants to speak to anyone who knew him or who saw the the motorbike, particularly in the area of Tillingbourne Gardens or around Dover Street, at about 0600 GMT.

She added: "This was a cold blooded and planned murder.

Mr Paduret was without doubt targeted and we now need to establish why so that those responsible can be put before the courts and held to account."

The victim's mother, Mariana Paduret, has flown into London from her home in Romania.

She said: "To me Tony meant everything.

"He had such tremendous love for people, he would call his friends and relatives brothers and sisters.

"He was incredibly generous and forgiving and at the same time very modest about it. He had an acute sense of justice and he took pride in everything he did.

"I have this great sense of loss.

"Words cannot express how dearly he is going to be missed by all of us."
