A Virginia tech executive has died nearly one week after he got into a fight on a Washington, D.C. street — and the suspect remains at large.

Dr. Vivek “Vick” Taneja, 41, died Wednesday, WUSA9 reported.

Taneja was found on the pavement outside Shoto Restaurant, at around 2 a.m. on Feb. 2 by authorities responding to a report of an assault, according to the outlet.

He was taken to the hospital with life-threatening injuries.

Taneja got into an argument with a man before the dispute turned physical — and he was knocked to the ground, smacking his head on the pavement, WUSA9 reported, citing the preliminary investigation.

Police are now investigating the incident as a homicide.

The person of interest was captured on surveillance footage, WUSA9 said.

The Metropolitan Police Department did not immediately respond to The Post’s request for comment.

Taneja, of Alexandria, was the co-founder and president of Dynamo Technologies, an IT company that works with the federal government, according to his LinkedIn.

He spearheaded the company’s federal government contracting, the company website said.
