UPDATED – American Sniper Chris Kyle Dead At 39
As is often the case in a breaking story, the news surrounding the Chris Kyle tragedy changing almost hourly.
When we first posted the story yesterday afternoon, the Dallas News was reporting that the shooting took place during a charity event sponsored by Kyle. That news is now known to be inaccurate. It is now being reported that Kyle was at the gun range at Rough Creek Lodge and Resort with only Chad Littlefield and arrested suspect Eddie Ray Routh at the time of the murder.
What does remain factual correct from our original story is that Chris Kyle was no stranger to the Dallas Safari Club. He attended last month’s Journeys Convention, spoke at the Life Member’s Breakfast, and had donated his time to an upcoming African hunt that was auctioned at the Convention for more that $40,000.
The Dallas Safari Club’s deepest sympathies are with Kyle’s wife, two children, and family at the time of this terrible loss.
