One man was killed in what police believe was a targeted shooting in a downtown Vancouver neighbourhood.
Vancouver Police Department says they were called to the Coal Harbour area Saturday night after receiving numerous 9-1-1 calls about shots fired.
Const. Tania Visintin says the shooting occurred in a public area at about 8:30 p.m. outside Cardero’s restaurant near the Coal Harbour Quay.
She says the victim died despite efforts by police and emergency officials to save him.
Visintn says the popular location of the shooting put innocent people at risk.
No one has been arrested.
The man’s death is Vancouver’s fifth homicide this year.
