WASHINGTON (AP) — D.C. police say one man is dead and five others are injured after a fight at a Dupont Circle nightclub.

Officers were called to the 1300-block of Connecticut Avenue northwest around 2:30 a.m. Sunday. Police say a fight began inside the Heritage India restaurant and club and spilled out onto the sidewalk, where three men were shot and three more were stabbed.

All six men were taken to area hospitals, where police say one shooting victim, 34-year-old Jhonte Coleman of Suitland, Md., later died of his injuries. Police say the five other men are still being treated.

Connecticut Avenue between Dupont Circle and N Street was closed for several hours while police investigated.

Police have not made any arrests.
