Two gunmen targeted the Pakistani employee outside his residence.

Unknown gunmen on Monday shot dead a Pakistani employee of the U.S. consulate in Peshawar, officials said.

Two gunmen riding a motorcycle opened fire on Faisal Saeed, 30, outside his residence in Peshawar, said senior police official Najibur Rehman. Rehman identified Saeed as a former employee of the U.S. consulate in Peshawar, but the U.S. embassy in Islamabad said he was a staff member.

“Local authorities are investigating a tragic incident that has affected a Pakistani national U.S. Consulate Peshawar employee,” a U.S. Embassy spokeswoman said in a statement. “We strongly condemn this brutal and senseless death, and express our heartfelt condolences to the family,” she said.

There was no immediate claim of responsibility for the killing.
