June 26, 2012 - 2:00 AM

PORT MOODY, B.C. - One man is dead after a shooting on the streets of the Metro Vancouver suburb of Port Moody, northeast of Vancouver.

Port Moody police were called just before 4:45 p.m. after the man was shot and killed while outside a Starbucks (near St. John’s Street and Queen’s Street).

One caller to a local radio station (News1130) says he heard six shots, half a second apart.

The victim has not yet been positively identified but police say the early indication is that he is known to police and this was a targeted gang-related shooting.

Police say there are no firm details yet on a possible suspect or suspects.

Vancouver and Port Moody police will be on the scene for most of the night looking for clues and canvassing the neighbourhood.
