WASHINGTON (AP) — A 27-year-old man who worked for the Democratic National Committee has died after being shot in northwest Washington.

Police say Seth Conrad Rich died Sunday after he was shot multiple times. Police say the shooting happened around 4:15 a.m. Acting Capt. Anthony Haythe of the Metropolitan Police Department’s homicide branch said at a news conference Monday morning that Rich lived in the area. Haythe says there were no witnesses, and police have no suspects. He says investigators are looking into all possible motives.

Rich’s title at the DNC was voter expansion data director. In a statement, DNC Chair Debbie Wasserman Schultz called Rich a “dedicated, selfless public servant who worked tirelessly to protect the most sacred right we share as Americans.”
