A stabbing at a D.C. nightclub Sunday left one man dead and another injured.

One man was stabbed inside Barcode and another outside at approximately 11:40 p.m, reports WUSA9. Barcode is located near Farragut Square.

The Metropolitan Police Department confirmed to The Daily Caller News Foundation one adult male was pronounced dead at the hospital. The second victim, also an adult male, was moved to a local hospital where he is in stable condition.

“No arrests,” police told TheDCNF. “Detectives are actively investigating this case. More information will be released as it becomes available.”

Barcode is no stranger to criminal incidents. In January a drunk driver hopped the curb of the club and severely injured a number of customers. The stabbing investigation has focused heavily on the nightclub, reports NBC Washington.

Earlier Sunday a man was stabbed in Chinatown and suffered non-fatal injuries, reports WUSA9. The suspect is a black male in his 20s. It is unclear whether the two incidents are related.
