Chris Kyle- Deadliest Sniper in US history shot dead.

Chris Kyle who is claimed as the most lethal sniper in US history was shot dead on a Texas gun range February 2, 2013.

Witnesses said that he was with another man at Rough Creek Lodge's shooting range near Forth Worth, Texas, when a gunman opened fire on the men before fleeing in a pick-up truck belonging to one of the victims, according to a local newspaper. Both victims were fatally shot. The newspaper said a 25-year-old man was later taken into custody nearby and that charges were expected. The motive for the shooting is unclear.

He was so prolific as a sniper during his  four tours of Iraq that the former Navy SEAL, marksman and author had an $80,000 bounty put on his head by Iraqi insurgents in Ramadi, and branded him “Al-Shaitan Ramadi” - “The Devil of Ramadi.”. He received three Silver Stars and five Bronze Stars with Valor during his tour of duty.

his comrades and a “devil” by his enemies, Kyle racked up a record 160 kills.

Kyle, 38, is the author of the New York Times best-selling book, "American Sniper:The Autobiography of the Most Lethal Sniper in US Military History," about the 150-plus insurgents he killed between 1999 and 2009. He was also in the news recently as he was being sued for defamation by Jesse Ventura, former Governor of Minnesota, over the book's claim that Kyle punched Ventura in a 2006 bar fight over unpatriotic remarks. Ventura said the punch never happened. The suit was set to begin in August.

The married father of two, from Odessa, Texas, was president of Craft International, providing sniper and security training for the US military.
