SAN DIEGO -- One person was killed in a shooting in the Linda Vista neighborhood Friday evening, authorities said.

The shooting was reported around 5 p.m. along the 7000 block of Levant Street at the Linda Vista Recreation Center. Witnesses said it took place outside the recreation center building near the basketball and tennis courts. Several witnesses told FOX 5 that they heard three gunshots.

Police said a fight broke out between a group of males ranging in age from in their teens to early 20s. Some of the individuals within that group left and later returned. Upon their return, one man was shot.

The victim was a 19-year-old Asian man, according to police. His name has not yet been released.

The shooter was described as a Hispanic male between the ages of 15 and 22. Anyone with information was asked to call SDPD.

This is at least the fifth shooting incident in Linda Vista since May. On May 23, a 16-year-old boy was shot and killed. A month later, another young man was shot near a memorial for the 16-year-old victim. In early August, a 19-year-old man was wounded in a shooting near Kelly Street Neighborhood Park. And on October 3, a teenager was shot in a drive-by shooting in the 6900 block of Linda Vista Road
