• Former US Navy SEAL Chris Kyle fatally shot on gun range

    Reported by: The Star-Telegram and Stephenville Empire-Tribune

    "The Fort Worth Star-Telegram and Stephenville Empire-Tribune report that Erath County Sheriff Tommy Bryant says the 38-year-old Kyle and a second man were found dead Saturday afternoon at Rough Creek Lodge's shooting range west of Glen Rose.

    The Star-Telegram reports that witnesses told sheriff's investigators a gunman opened fire on the men, then fled in a pickup truck belonging to one of the victims. Glen Rose is about an hour southwest of Fort Worth.

    The newspapers say a 25-year-old man was later taken into custody in Lancaster, southeast of Dallas. The motive is unclear.

    Kyle wrote the best-selling book, "American Sniper.

    Attachment 44I seen his interview with Bill O'Rielly. During that interview it was revealed that he decked Jesse "The Body" Ventura in the McP's Irish Pub & Grill "McP's in Coronado, California for bad mouthing the Government and the Seals. Jesse a former Seal himself was shooting his mouth off when he said "Seals should loose more guys" Then Kyle decked him.

    Chris Kyle was so good at his job as a sniper in Iraq and Afghanistan that he had a heavy price on his head. He has been noted to be the most lethal sniper in US Military History ever and with over 200 kills. What a shame. I think we should all say a prayer that heads for a better life.
