A 29-year-old man has died and a 28-year-old has been seriously injured in a targeted, gang-related shooting in downtown Vancouver.

Sergeant Randy Fincham says the men were attacked at about 10:30 Monday evening near the Coal Harbour waterfront, on West Cordova Street, not far from the Olympic cauldron and several upscale hotels.

Officers blocked off the area and it remained closed early Tuesday morning.

The second man is reported in stable condition.
