Seth Rich, 27, suffered multiple gunshot wounds early Sunday morning in Washington's Bloomingdale neighborhood, according to law enforcement officials.
D.C. police said officers who had been patrolling the area responded to the sound of shots fired, ultimately finding Rich at the scene both "conscious and breathing." He was then transported to an area hospital, where police said he "succumbed to his injuries and was pronounced dead."
Rich worked as voter expansion data director for the DNC since 2014, the DNC confirmed. A 2011 graduate of Creighton University, Rich's resume is filled with various jobs in Democratic politics and political consulting.
