Ex-SEAL/author fatally shot on gun range

Screen Shot 2013-02-03 at 8.24.43 AMGLEN ROSE, Texas (AP) — Former Navy SEAL and “American Sniper” author Chris Kyle was fatally shot along with another man Saturday on a Texas gun range, a sheriff told local newspapers.

Erath County Sheriff Tommy Bryant said Kyle, 38, and a second man were found dead at Rough Creek Lodge’s shooting range west of Glen Rose, according to the Fort Worth Star-Telegram and Stephenville Empire-Tribune. Glen Rose is about 50 miles southwest of Fort Worth.

Bryant did not immediately return phone calls to The Associated Press seeking comment late Saturday and early Sunday. A woman who answered the phone at the lodge where the shooting occurred declined comment and referred calls to the sheriff’s office.

Investigators did not immediately release the name of the second victim, according to the newspapers.

Witnesses told sheriff’s investigators that a gunman opened fire on the men around 3:30 p.m. Saturday, then fled in a pickup truck belonging to one of the victims, according to the Star-Telegram. The newspapers said a 25-year-old man was later taken into custody in Lancaster, southeast of Dallas, and that charges were expected.

    Who would want to kill all-American
    hero? I think Anti-American scum like “Todds & Co.”…

  • Darkomarko

    This was an assassination, you libtard idiot Todd. Count the number of SEALS/former SEALS that have been killed under the Beelzebub watch. Ain’t no conspiracy theory, either

  • GridRider

    What a shame. Rest Brother.

  • Frank_Alexander

    May he rest in peace. The mentally ill should not be allowed to have access to firearms. Unfortunately, if you give the govt the authority to decide who is mentally ill, it would declare Chris Kyle as mentally ill because he allegedly “had some issues” post war zone service.

    I do not have an answer but if 2 separate medical doctors (psychatrists, not psychologists or counsellors) who do not work in the same medical practice and who are not government employees determine one is ill, then s/he is ill… Obviously this requires that relatives/loved ones/the VA/etc… take the step to refer someone to an independent medical authority and if commitment to an institution is indicated, well let it be so.

    You won’t see that on the media. Instead we will listen to Justin Bieber’s Mom, 6 yr. olds cage fighting, & Hillary. Even tho they were shot w/ a gun it will not be on TV because a Naval Seal was killed, and altho the WH Muslim cares not….he will not voice any opinion. He will probably set the shooter free, by instructing those honest judges to do so. I hope Texans are a lot mad at this senseless murder..

  • Carla Rogers Williams

    disarm everyone because of a few crazy people, yeah that makes sense :/

  • DenverKitty

    Todd, please crawl back under the rock from whence you came. No one is interested in anything you have to say.

  • pslinger

    Let’s take your car away because someone killed someone else with a car. Let’s take your kitchen knives away because someone killed someone else with a kitchen knife. Moron.

    Another reason Anti-Americans (“Todd”) should be banned and sent to safe Mexico where all guns are banned for a long time.

    Todd is another Idiot. Its alright for the mental to have illegal guns, but not for the good people to own any.

  • barbiecakes

    Todd, I’m sure criminals will turn theirs in. Do your caretakers know you’ve left the home sweetheart?

  • 19gundog43

    If “Todd” actually had a brain he would take it out and play with it. It is
    actually good dumb arses like him write here, it gives insight into how mentally
    ill these clowns are. Keep writing “Todd” but please stop sleeping with your
    mother. It really is unhealthy and the nursing home is beginning to
    complain.
