Authorities Wednesday released the name of a 19-year-old man killed last week in a shooting at Linda Vista Recreation Center.

Nam Nguyen of San Diego was shot by an unidentified assailant about 4:45 p.m. Friday during a fight between two groups of young men near a basketball court at the city recreation facility in the 7000 block of Levant Street, according to police.

Paramedics took Nguyen to a nearby hospital, where he was pronounced dead, said Lt. Martha Sainz.

The reason for the brawl that led to the shooting was unclear.
