Chris Kyle, Navy SEAL sniper and author of “American Sniper,” was shot and killed along with another man at a gun range in Glen Rose, Texas. The Sheriff said witnesses saw a man open fire around 3:30 Saturday afternoon, and then flee in a truck that belonged to one of the victims. The name of the second man is unknown.
Kyle claimed he killed at least 150 insurgents as a sniper between 1999 and 2009. No motive is known for the shooting.
A 25-year-old man has been arrested in Lancaster, a town southeast of Dallas. Authorities say they expect charges to be filed against him.
Kyle was being sued by former Minnesota governor Jesse Ventura. In his book, Kyle claimed to have punched Ventura in a bar fight over unpatriotic remarks. Ventura said the fight never happened. The judge told both sides to be ready for a trial by August.
