The incident took place in an eastern district of Riyadh.

The gunman who shot and killed an American and wounded another in Riyadh on Tuesday was a disgruntled former employee of defence contractor Vinnell Arabia and a US-Saudi citizen, a US diplomat said.

The victims  of the shooting at a gas station in the Saudi capital also worked at Vinnell Arabia, said the diplomat, ruling out terrorism as a motive for the attack.

An assailant was arrested, according to the statement.
