We hear reaction to death of US Sniper Chris Kyle shot dead at Texas shooting range.

He was known as the deadliest sniper in US history, after apparently killing more than 250 people in Iraq.

According to US army intelligence he was nicknamed ‘The Devil’ by Iraqi insurgents who had put a $20,000 bounty on his head.

In the end Chris Kyle was killed on a Texas shooting range, when a fellow US Iraqi war veteran he was helping to overcome PTSD, shot and killed him and a friend at close range.
