Dem strategist, fundraiser stabbed in Raleigh
RALEIGH, N.C.–A Democratic strategist and his wife were stabbed on Monday evening at their rental home in Raleigh, according to WRAL.
Nation Richard Hahn, 27, and Jamie Kirk Hahn, 29, were being treated at WakeMed in Raleigh for what authorities say were serious injuries from the Monday evening attack.
According to a search warrant and a 911 call released Tuesday, police responding to the home were directed to a location about a tenth of a mile away on Tealbriar Drive, where they found Jamie Hahn, with multiple stab wounds, on the ground and a trail of blood leading back to the home.
“Someone stabbed her, and she’s bleeding so badly,” the 911 caller said. “It was a lady that was running down the street, and she’s been stabbed, and she’s in the yard.”
According to WRAL, police have charged Jonathan Wayne Broyhill, 31, with attempted murder and assault with a deadly weapon with intent to kill inflicting serious injury. He was also at WakeMed Tuesday recovering from injuries.
The warrant does not say how Broyhill knows the Hahns, but friends said Tuesday that he is a longtime friend of the couple and was best man at their wedding in 2009.
Family members of the Hahns released a statement Tuesday morning in which they said Jamie Hahn “is fighting for her life” with her husband by her side.
Nation Hahn works as a Democratic strategist and his wife is a fundraiser. Both are well-known figures in political circles in Raleigh.
