No suspects, leads after American teacher is killed in Benghazi

There are lots of questions tonight surrounding the shooting death of a U.S. teacher in Benghazi, Libya on Thursday.

Ronald Smith, a 33-year-old chemistry teacher at the International School in Benghazi, was gunned down while allegedly jogging yesterday morning. Smith was living in Libya with his wife and son while working at the school.

Why he was killed is still unknown, but he is now the fifth American to be murdered in Benghazi after Ambassador Chris Stevens and three others were killed during an attack nearly 15 months ago.

Nic Robertson is following the story and has the latest details.
