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.

Being from Texas.....why is this dude still alive?

Meaning he just shot 2 people and stole a truck. Wait...let me rephrase...he just shot 2 veterans, one which was highly decorated and the other I am not sure about. The likely hood that he is still armed is great since he just left a gun range.

I would have thought Texas DPS would have been "Halt!!! BLAM BLAM BLAM!!! or we will shoot" type of deal instead of capturing him.

CNN was just saying this looks to be a case of exposure therapy gone horribly wrong.

Irony.
Wow. This is just absolutely embarrassing.

There are 60 million responsible gun owners in America. The focus of this tragedy should not be "guns" but mental health. We as Americans need to learn how to recognize mental health issues, address them properly and provide help to all those in need.

Until we do so, more tragedies like this will occur.

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
Not really calling this "cold".......but for what it's worth:

Paul is friends with Jesse Ventura. Kyle wrote that he punched out Ventura in a bar over "unamerican" comments by Ventura.

Kyle says all these things on Fox News.....who is owned by the same company that published Kyle's book......

Ventura threatens lawsuit (as he claims it never happened and he said it just to sell more books).

Kyle tries to somewhat retract by citing first amendment protection.

Can't recall the rest of the story.....but an interesting story, nonetheless.

This is a tragedy. Someone who earned a life of peace and freedom, helping others causing his end.





Spoons made you fat. Lead based paint for lubricant probably made you stupid.

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.

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.
You're a fat piece of shit Denise.

Additionally, it is hard to utilize said skills when you're being shot in the back. I know it might be difficult to grasp with your mongoloid brain but human beings do not have eyes in the back of their skulls, telepathy, or the ability to see the future.

If they haven't taken it down yet, maybe you should go post something derogatory on Chris Kyle's Facebook page, little hero.
