CHICAGO —September 28  A U.S. official and an Illinois family have identified the CIA contractor killed during a shooting at an agency facility in Kabul, Afghanistan.

The father of 61-year-old Jay Henigan says his son was killed in the attack Sunday. Henigan was a lifelong resident of Sycamore, Ill., about 50 miles west of Chicago.

Tom Henigan says his son had just begun his second stint working as a plumber for the CIA in Kabul.

A U.S. official says Jay Henigan was shot by an Afghan worker who was providing security to the facility. The official requested anonymity because he was speaking about intelligence matters.

Tom Henigan says his son went back to Afghanistan “because he just wanted to help out.”
