Chris Kyle was one of two people shot and killed Saturday at a Texas shooting range. Kyle held the record for the most confirmed sniper kills, at 150.
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 apprehended and taken into custody in Lancaster, southeast of Dallas, where he was arraigned on two counts of capital murder.
