(FOX NEWS) An Australian baseball player who was allegedly shot and killed at random while he was jogging wasn’t targeted because of his race or nationality, the prosecutor in charge of the case said Friday.

Christopher Lane, a 22-year-old student at East Central University, was shot in the back and killed last week while jogging in Duncan, a southern Oklahoma community where the three teenagers accused in his killing live.

“At this point, the evidence does not support the theory that Christopher Lane was targeted based upon his race or nationality,” District Attorney Jason Hicks said in a statement.
