“Apparently Mr. Kyle works with people that are suffering from some issues that have been in the military and this shooter is possibly one of those people, that he had taken out to the range to mentor, to visit with, to help him, you know, that’s all I can tell you,” Erath County Sheriff Tommy Bryant.
“Kind of have an idea that maybe that’s why they were at the range, for some type of therapy that Mr. Kyle assists people with, and I don’t know if it’s called shooting therapy,” Bryant said. “I don’t have any idea but that’s what little bit of information that we can gather so far.”
Witnesses told police that Routh left the shooting scene in Kyle’s pickup truck. He drove to his sister’s home in Midlothian and when he allegedly told her and her husband that he had shot the two men, the couple called police.
When investigators got there, Routh fled in another vehicle, but he was captured a short time later.(According to ABC News)
