Vancouver police say one man was killed in what they believe was a targeted shooting in a downtown neighbourhood.

They say there have been no arrests.

Police say they were called to the Coal Harbour area Saturday night after 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.

She says the man's death is Vancouver's fifth homicide this year.
