Breaking NewsAuthor of "American Sniper" among the dead at Rough Creek

Not much for details.... Just a damn sad bit of news.. The suspect prob feels like a real hot shot hope someone puts a round in him before the law catches up with him. Sorry but I just can't accept this... This young man served his country and someone does this..

The 25-year-old suspect was apprehended about five hours later in Lancaster, southeast of Dallas, more than 70 miles from the scene, Bryant said.
The suspect, identified as Eddie Ray Routh, 25, was pursued to a house in Lancaster by officers, including a local SWAT team. Routh again try to flee in a vehicle but was stopped after spikes were laid across a road, Bryant said.
"The suspect has been caught and is in custody in Lancaster," the sheriff said. Erath County sheriff's investigators and Texas Rangers were securing a capital murder warrant.
Witnesses told sheriff's investigators that the gunman opened fire on the two men around 3:30 p.m., then fled in a pickup truck belonging to one of the victims.
The motive of the shooting remained unclear, he said. "Not a clue; absolutely no idea."

One of America's greatest heroes.

I remember watching him on "Top Shot" and "Stars Earn Stripes"

I heard about this on the Radio on the way Home tonight and couldn't believe it, had to get online to confirm it.
A Man who saved countless lives defending our Troops from attack and survived four tours of duty in the middle east is killed by some POS who was probably trying to gain some notoriety for Himself.
