    One of the more recent articles I saw said that him and his neighbor were at the range helping a soldier with PTSD. No word on if the shooter had anything to do with them or was a carjacker, or what, but the shooter was arrested driving Chris Kyle's truck.

    I don't think anyone should speculate until the facts are out.

    RIP Chris

    Which makes it all the more of a waste of two lives.

    RIP guys.

    This is just terrible. All that he survived through fighting for his country to be murdered at home like this. Rest in peace brother!

    RIP Chief Kyle
    I don't know if I idolized the man or not, but compared to all the people out there making headlines Chief Kyle was definitely a hero of mine.

    Retired, but not expired.
    The report I read said the soldier with PTSD they were working with shot them both. Even more tragic, if possible, if that is the way it happened.

    The place where this happened is a high class resort/hunting lodge where the cheapest room is over $500 a night! Look up Rough Creek Lodge for details.

    However, it is like a meca for shooting/hunting enthusiast.

    Sad day for America. Hero killed not in combat but on his own turf by another member of military. I purchased CK book when it came out and a very good read. RIP Chief.

    One report I read stated that there were wittnesses but details or a possible motive have not been released at this time.

    I read an article this morning that said that there were no witnesses and they weren't found for about two hours after their deaths.
