AUSTIN -- A local teacher gunned down in Libya was laid to rest on Thursday.

33-year-old Ronnie Smith was a University of Texas graduate and an active staff member at Austin Stone Community Church.

He had been teaching chemistry in Benghazi for about 18 months and was gunned down in early December while jogging near the consulate.

Smith leaves behind a wife and young child. He was scheduled to come home last week.
