Over the weekend Navy SEAL and author of "American Sniper" Chris Kyle was shot with another man at a gun range in Texas.  The suspect of this shooting, Eddie Ray Routh, is a retired Marine and veteran of the Iraq War and is now being seen to see if he suffers Post Traumatic Stress Disorder.  Chad Littlefield was another victim in this shooting.   Capt. Jason Upshaw of the Erath County sheriff's office has indicated that so far no motive of the shooting has been revealed.  It appears that there was no struggle at the sight of the scene, but now Routh is in jail segregated from the other inmates.  Routh was arraigned with two Capital offenses of murder on saturday.  The president of the non--profit orginazation Kyle had set up said that Routh suffered from PTSD and he and Littlefield were taking him to the range to help him.  It is unclear on how many deaths occur at gun ranges becuase the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives and the FBI's Uniform Crime Reporting system

Is Chris Kyle actually dead? That's horrible. The man's an American hero. He went through his own struggles after returning to civilian life as well, especially when you consider his line of work, but after finding his way, he devoted his services to helping other combat veterans cope with their inner demons and reintroduce them to regular society. I really hope Ruth gets capital punishment. For killing someone who was simply helping him, he deserves the worst punishment physically possible.
