(Updated Wednesday at 5:47 p.m.) A man who was found with a self-inflicted stab wound in Thomas Circle Park yesterday morning has died.
D.C. Fire and EMS personnel received a report that a man was injured and unconscious in the park around 9:20 a.m. yesterday.
The man, identified by the Washington Post as Paul Wegerson, stabbed himself in the abdomen with a pair of scissors, according to a D.C. Police spokesman. Though paramedics rushed Wegerson to a local hospital soon after he was found, he later died from his wounds.
Wegerson, 35, worked as a director at Burson-Marsteller, a public relations and communications firm with offices about a block from Thomas Circle.
