Looks kind of like a piranha someone let go fro m their fish tank.
Look at this link and compare all of the fins and coloration.

thats actually a Red-bellied Pacu (Piaractus brachypomus) which is a close relative of the piranha, however its teeth resemble that of a human, and its diet is that of plant material. it more than likely was released from an aquarium hobbyist as the urban program does not stock this species of fish. they can grow to be over 30 inches, nice catch none the less!

strange . . .
the things people do. There was a program on either Discovery or National Geographic channel awhile back about the problem with the Snakehead fish that were introduced into the Potomac river system. It is a literal nightmare. I wish people would think. Big fish, otherwise. Must have put up quite a fight.
