The former Libyan dictator Moammar Khadafy was killed Thursday, according to the country’s prime minister.

Reports early this morning indicated that Khadafy was either captured or dead. Later Al-Jazeera showed footage of a man resembling the former leader bleeding from gun shot wound to the head.

Khadafy, who was ousted by rebels this spring, was reportedly killed by a 20 year old named Ahmed Al Shebani who found him hiding in a hole in the city of Sirte.

“New Yorkers know better than almost anyone else how evil a man Moammar Khadafy was. Hopefully his death will bring some degree of closure to the many families who lost loved ones on Pam Am Flight 103. The world is a better and safer place without him,” Senator Charles E. Schumer said in a statement.
