American Teacher Fatally Shot in Libya

An American teacher was shot to death this morning in Libya.

The international school in Benghazi tells CBS News American chemistry teacher Ronald Smith was shot and killed while jogging Thursday morning.

He's believed to be a Texas native.

So far, no one has claimed responsibility for his murder in the Eastern Libyan city of Benghazi, but suspicion will likely fall on Islamic militants.

Smith was reportedly running near the US consulate when he was gunned down.

That's where terrorists killed ambassador Christopher Stevens and three other Americans last September.
