A shooting near a rec center in Adams Morgan left one man dead Wednesday night, and now the search is on for the gunman.

Once they arrived in the area next to the Marie Reed Community Center, officers found a man suffering from "life-threatening injuries." Police said the victim – who has been identified as 30-year-old Arnold Humberto Solis, of Northwest – was unconscious and not breathing. 

At this point in the investigation, detectives believe the suspect is a man with several tattoos who was last seen wearing dark clothing with a tan camel colored bucket hat.

Witnesses FOX 5 spoke to said the shooting happened after two men began arguing on the steps near the soccer field. The gunman, a witness said, walked away after killing the other man. 

D.C. Police Chief Pam Smith said while the suspect remains on the loose – there is no threat to the community.
