One person was killed in a shooting at the Linda Vista Recreation Center and the suspect was at large Saturday morning.

The gunfire at the recreation center in the 7000 block of Levant Street was reported about 4:45 p.m. Friday, according to San Diego Police.

Witnesses told police two groups of young men got into an argument near the basketball court, which turned into a fight. A park staff member saw what was happening and told the groups he was going to call police.

The men dispersed for a while and then one person came back and shot the victim, police said.

A search of the area failed to turn up the shooter.

The victim was described only as a 19-year-old Asian man, but his name was not disclosed.

A detailed description of the suspect was not available.
