FREDERICKSBURG, Va. (AP) - The CEO of a Virginia security company says one of his contract employees was the American victim in an attack in Libya that left five foreigners dead.

Cliff Taylor of Crucible LLC of Fredericksburg identified the worker as David Berry. He declined to release any additional information on Berry, citing security concerns.

In a statement, Taylor said Berry was a contractor with Crucible.

Taylor said the company was still gathering details on the death of Berry, who was among five foreigners killed Tuesday when a gunman stormed a luxury hotel in the Libyan capital.

A senior U.S. State Department official confirmed the death of one American, but provided no details.

Taylor said Crucible employs less than 100 people.
