Chris Kyle, a former U.S. Navy SEAL credited with the largest number of confirmed kills, was one of two people fatally shot at a North Texas shooting range Saturday, Texas Highway Patrol confirmed to Fox News.
Erath County Sheriff Tommy Bryant told the Star-Telegram that Kyle, 38, was shot by a suspected gunman, identified as 25-year-old Eddie Ray Routh, around 3:30 p.m.
Routh allegedly opened fire on the two men before fleeing in a pickup truck belonging to one of the victims, according to the report.
Routh was found at about 8 p.m. Saturday at his residence and taken into custody in Lancaster, southeast of Dallas, where he was arraigned on two counts of capital murder.
