Police haven’t released the victim’s name.

No arrests have been made in Wednesday night's shooting.

This is the second deadly shooting outside the Watts Branch Recreation Center this month.

He was a former intern for Pennsylvania Congressman Chaka Fattah.

Police arrested Antoine Taylor, 29, of Fort Washington, Md., and charged him with first-degree murder.
