Former U.S. sniper killed at gun range

| No Comments

The U.S. military's deadliest sniper was shot on Saturday by another former military man at a gun range in Glen Rose, Texas.
Chris Kyle, Ex- Navy Seal sniper, was at a gun range with his friend and fellow veteran Chad Littlefield when the two were shot and killed on Saturday, said the Guardian.
Eddie Ray Routh, another veteran who arrived with Kyle and Littlefield, is the suspected shooter, and was apprehended at his home after fleeing the scene of the crime, said Sheriff Tommy Bryant of Erath County as reported by CNN.
Kyle is the author of the best-selling memoir, "American Sniper" in which he discusses his tours of duty, and on being a sniper. Kyle is known to give counsel to fellow veterans who struggle with post-traumatic stress disorder, and this has been cited as the reason Kyle and Littlefield were with Routh, said the Guardian. It is likely that Routh was suffering from PTSD, and that Kyle was trying to help, said the Dallas Morning News.
