Awful news. RIP Chris Kyle.

Kyle was shot point-blank while helping another soldier who was recovering from post traumatic stress syndrome, officials said. The murders happened at a shooting range near the town of Glen Rose, about 53 miles southwest of Fort Worth.

The Erath County Sheriff's Office issued an alert for the arrest of the suspect, who was later identified as Eddie Routh, 25. Officials warned that Routh was traveling in a Ford F-150 pickup with large tires and rims. They said he was believed to be highly trained with military experience.

Routh was reportedly later captured in Lancaster, south of Dallas.

Officials said the second shooting victim was a neighbor of the suspect. All three men lived in Midlothian, Texas.

I have no idea whether it was a hit or not, but writing a book bragging about how many people you killed seems like a good way to make enemies.

Jesse Ventura did it.

But seriously, not a whole lot of details out so far. And the fact that he was killed by a Marine is noteworthy. I wonder if they'd served together or if it was business related or what.

Wondered how you knew it was a Marine so I googled Eddie Routh and this came up. Consider the source, but it says Channel 8 carried the story.

quote:

Investigators believe Routh, a former Marine, turned his weapon on Kyle and the second victim before fleeing the scene.
Update: Some more information:

The motive of the shooting remained unclear, Bryant said. "Not a clue; absolutely no idea."

WFAA/Channel 8 quoted unnamed sources as saying that Kyle of Midlothian and a neighbor had taken Routh on an outing to help him deal with post-traumatic stress disorder. Routh turned on the men and shot them in the back, the report added.

The sheriff said he could not confirm how the victims were shot.

In January 2012, the Cleburne Times-Review reported that Routh of Lancaster was arrested in Johnson county on a DWI charge. Public records showed Routh previously lived in Camp LeJeune, N.C., site of a major Marine base.

I'm puzzled, how did the shooter do this and then escape at a gun range? Aren't more guns supose to keep this from happening?

Thanks for the update. Good info. While I'm fairly well aware of the potential effects of PTSD, I'm not a big subscriber to the theory of people randomly "snapping" for nothing. I can only assume that they had a dispute about something or another.

Perhaps we'll find out once they question the guy.
