One of the shooting victims was 38-year-old Chris Kyle, author of the best-selling book American Sniper: The Autobiography of the Most Lethal Sniper in U.S. Military History. The book details Kyle’s time as a Navy Seal and vividly depicts his 150-plus kills in service from 1999 to 2009.
According to the county sheriff, Tommy Bryant, a gunman opened fire on the two men — the second man’s name is yet to be confirmed — and then fled in one of the victim’s pickup truck.
