America's Best Sniper killed at TX Gun Range

Sniper Chris Kyle killed in Erath County Saturday, man arrested in his, another's slaying
9:35 pm on February 2, 2013 | Permalink

Chris Kyle, a former Navy SEAL and author of the best-selling book American Sniper, and a second person were shot and killed Saturday at a gun range in Erath County, U.S. Marshals said.

Late Saturday, Lancaster police arrested a man who they say matched the description of a man wanted in connection with the slayings. After a brief chase, officers arrested 25-year-old Eddie Ray Routh, according to Lancaster police spokesperson Kelly Hooten.

Reporting on the shootings, the Stephenville Empire-Tribune said Erath County Sheriff Tommy Bryant would not discuss the victims. But the newspaper said that a source working at Rough Creek Lodge, which has a gun range at which the newspaper reported the slayings occurred, confirmed that one of the victims was Kyle.

WFAA-TV (Channel 8) reported that Kyle was shot point-blank while helping another soldier who is recovering from post traumatic stress syndrome.

Erath County officials had issued an alert for authorities to be on the lookout for the gunman, who was believed to be armed and dangerous and driving a black Ford F-350 truck with large tires and rims.

The suspect was believed to be highly trained with military experience. The shooting location is 53 miles southwest of Fort Worth, according to WFAA.

Kyle grew up in Texas and spent much of his time riding horses and participating on the school rodeo team. His life quickly changed when he decided to go into the military and became a Navy SEAL. He deployed four times to Iraq. Kyle held the record for number of kills by an American sniper. The Pentagon has confirmed more than 150 of his kills. The previous record was 109. For his service, Kyle was awarded two Silver Stars and five Bronze Stars with Valor. His autobiography, American Sniper, was released last year.

That was a pretty good book. RIP.

Whoever shot him is a pathetic excuse for a human being unless there is something serious going on that we're not aware of yet.

This statement. The notion that you can be trained and skilled out the ass plus have loaded guns all around you but still get your ass shot and killed in a moment you are not on watch for assailants. Irony.

Especially considering he served four tours in a war zone. The idea of him standing alert every second of the day just struck me as funny.

Wow...awfully cold statement from Ron Paul.....



http://www.huffingtonpost.com/2013/0...n_2616520.html


Former Rep. Ron Paul (R-Texas) took to Twitter Monday to respond to this weekend's fatal shooting of former Navy SEAL Chris Kyle.

The suspect who allegedly shot Kyle and another man is Eddie Ray Routh, a veteran who authorities believe may have a mental illness related to his military service.

Paul wondered what Routh was doing at the Texas shooting range:

Kyle was the most lethal sniper in U.S. military history, with 160 confirmed kills. After leaving the Navy in 2009, he wrote his autobiography, American Sniper, published last year



Chris Kyle's death seems to confirm that "he who lives by the sword dies by the sword." Treating PTSD at a firing range doesn't make sense

What is cold? He said what many, most, are wondering and/or thinking. The fact that this was military personnel suffering from PTSD makes this rather tricky for a number of parties involved. Was Routh getting proper treatment for his illness? Did a doctor or other medical professional suggest that someone suffering from PTSD be taken to a driving range? Was part of Routh's illness is that he seemed unable to turn off being at war making him a danger to himself and/or others?

We night not ever know the answers but I think the situation is sufficiently odd to warrant asking the questions.
