Details are being gathered about the first American known to be killed fighting for Islamic State militants in Syria. Douglas McCain was 33 years old when he died Sunday. He was raised in Minnesota and had worked as a caregiver in California.

On Tuesday, the U.S. National Security Council confirmed Douglas McCain's death. The State Department said U.S. officials had communicated with his family.

Mr. McCain reportedly left the U.S. for Turkey and later traveled into territory controlled by the Islamic State militants. Over the weekend, he took part in an attack near Aleppo against another opposition group, called the Free Syrian Army, NBC News reported.

The Free Syrian Army killed McCain. It also executed six others Islamic State militants posted their photos on Facebook.

U.S. officials have recently expressed concern about American citizens who join extremists groups like Islamic State. They fear one or more might return home to carry out terrorist acts on American territory.

The fighting happened as Ukrainian President Petro Poroshenko and Russian President Vladimir Putin discussed a possible peace plan.
