Former Seal and American Sniper author Chris Kyle SHOT DEAD!

Chris Kyle was a United States Navy SEAL and the self-proclaimed "most lethal sniper in American military history," with 160 confirmed kills (out of 255 claimed kills) although these statistics have not yet been released by the Pentagon. Kyle was killed on February 2, 2013, at the Rough Creek Lodge shooting range in Erath County, Texas. Local police captured the suspect Eddie Ray Routh, after a short freeway chase, which ended when Routh, who had left the scene of the shootings in Kyle's Ford F-350 truck, crashed into a police cruiser. The suspect was arrested just before 9:00 p.m. the same day in Lancaster, Texas. Erath County Sheriffs said the motive for the killing was unclear. Police arrested Eddie Ray Routh, 25, of Lancaster and he was arraigned Saturday evening on two counts of capital murder, according to Sgt. Lonny Haschel of the Texas Department of Public Safety. Routh is being held in the Erath County Jail under a $3 million bond. A friend of Kyle said the suspect was a veteran struggling with PTSD. Kyle had reportedly taken Routh to the gun range in an effort to help him with his PTSD. Authorities say Routh used a semi-automatic handgun to kill Kyle and his friend.
