    Info from @JasonWhitely:

    #BREAKING: Sniper Chris Kyle and another were shot point-blank at a gun range near Glen Rose while helping a solider recover from PTSD.
    #BREAKING: Sniper Chris Kyle is the author of a best selling book called "American Sniper." He's credited w/ 255 confirmed kills.
    Shootings took place near Glen Rose in Erath County.

    Suspect in custody. Suspect is a 25 year old former Marine from Midlothian. Said to have been arrested in Lancaster.

    ETA: 255 confirmed kills is a possible typo. See January 2012 DMN article linked below which cites 150+ Pentagon confirmed kills.

    Deadliest sniper in U.S. military history is 'shot and killed point-blank by veteran suffering from PTSD' at Texas gun range

    A former Navy Seal, expert sniper and best-selling author was reportedly gunned down at a Texas shooting range Saturday by a veteran who is recovering from post-traumatic stress syndrome.

    Ex-Navy Seal Chris Kyle, 39, and another man were shot point-blank around 3:30 p.m. at a charity event on behalf of Kyle's security firm at the gun range at Rough Creek Lodge and Resort in Erath County.

    The suspect, 25-year-old Eddie Ray Routh, was arrested roughly five hours later in Lancaster, Texas after a police chase. He was driving Kyle's truck at the time of the arrest, police said.

    I am stunned. My son is enlisting in the Marines and Chris Kyle is his hero. Of all the ways he could have died, he died like this.

    I am so saddened to learn that Chris has been killed.

    He is a hero to all of our family.

    We all bought his best selling book "American Sniper' and he autographed each one for us.

    He wrote a special heartfelt paragraph to our son who served proudly in the Marine Corps for many years.

    He truly is a true Amercian hero.

    He did not want to be remembered as the Deadliest Sniper in the World but to be remembered as the man who saved and protected the countless lives of the guys he served with and loved.

    A hero has just entered Heaven. God bless.

    I really feel for his wife! She has been through a lot with his 4 tours and now she's a single mom.

    I do hope that because he was the so-called "deadliest sniper", that at the very least the murder is looked at from the standpoint of a terrorist act also--who the shooter associated with, received money from, etc. You just never know.

    ....and I'm not a paranoid person, but it is within the realm of a terrorist group to recruit someone here to carry out something like this.

    Post number two indicates the pair were killed at the shooting range "while helping a soldier recover from PTSD." Is that correct??

    Yes, that's what's being reported. Seems odd to me that therapy for PTSD would involve guns, but hey.
