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.
Kyle is also famous for knocking loudmouth Jessie Ventura on his ass in a bar in front of a number of witnesses, although Venutra later denied it.
Time for the return of public hangings.
★Tamara Jolee★ @TamaraJoleeTV - Here is a pic of Chris Kyle and his wife Taya. They have 2 children. Other victim Chad is married to my friend Leanne
This is sad news indeed. RIP Chris. May the Lord comfort his family. Watched him on “Stars Earn Stripes” last year. He was paired with Dean Cain.
Another psychotropic killing?
Chris was a close friend of my husband and I. I can’t bring myself to read the articles nor watch the news. It was an absolutely unreal phone call when we got the news. If ANY Freeper finds out any information about this dirtbag, please send it my way!
Back shot by a Marine (allegedly with PTSD) he was trying to help.
He must have believed he was among brothers, nothing to fear. Gun grabbers who try to exploit this are beneath contempt.
Crazy, senseless, infuriating. I am so angry that he died that way. He is a hero.
