An American school teacher living and working in Benghazi was shot and killed while exercising on Thursday.

“He was doing his morning exercise when gunmen just shot him. I don’t know why. He was so sweet with everyone,” the director of the school Adel al Mansouri told Reuters.

“Fadyah al-Burghathi, spokeswoman for the Al-Galaa hospital, says the body of a man from Texas was brought to the hospital on Thursday with gunshot wounds,” according to the Associated Press.

“Medical and security sources told Reuters that the man was targeted by gunmen as he was exercising,” Fox News reported.

The American man was reportedly from Texas and taught chemistry at the international school in Benghazi and was shot while jogging near the U.S. Consulate.

No one has claimed responsibility for the shooting,

It’s been 15 months since the terrorist attack on the U.S. Consulate that killed Ambassador Chris Stevens, Sean Smith, Ty Woods and Glen Doherty.
