A former Tarleton State University student who wrote the best-selling book, "American Sniper," was one of two victims shot and killed at Rough Creek Lodge Saturday.

Chris Kyle and another man were found dead at Rough Creek's shooting range between 3:30 and 4 p.m. Saturday, according to Sheriff Tommy Bryant.

Eddie Ray Routh was arrested just before 9 p.m. Friday in Lancaster.

Investigators would not release additional information about the case or comment on how Routh may have been connected to Kyle.

The name of the second victim has also not been released.

Kyle, 38, was a former Navy SEAL who served four tours of duty in Iraq, where he was given the nickname "The Devil of Ramadi" by insurgents.

In 2008, he made his longest successful shot after he spotted an insurgent with a rocket launcher near a U.S. Army convoy at a range of 2,100 yards (1.2 miles).

Kyle leaves behind a wife, Taya, and two children.

The conspiracy nuts are already having a field day.

They already have. Just read the article in TheBlaze. Some comments are really out of bounds.
I wonder when the lies will stop and truth begin, even as grim as the truth may be. And then I remember that for 70 years, the reign of terror in Russia called itself "the people's government." We have so far to fall, yet we are falling fast and Hell yawns to receive us.

Even worse on FR. Above Top Secret can't even keep a conspiracy going like them.
