Ex-Navy SEAL died pursuing his passion
STEPHENVILLE, Texas - Former Navy SEAL and expert sniper Chris Kyle was devoted to helping his fellow veterans navigate life after active duty.
Authorities say the 38-year-old Kyle was doing just that Saturday when he was slain along with a friend at a Texas gun range.

Sgt. Lonny Haschel with Texas Department of Public Safety says Erath County deputies responded to a shooting at the Rough Creek Lodge on Saturday and found the bodies Kyle and Littlefield. Police have not said whether they have identified a motive in the case.
