In February 2013, the 27-year-old shot Kyle and Chad Littlefield at the Rough Creek Lodge and Resort's shooting range in Texas.

The former member of the Marine Corps had pleaded not guilty by reason of insanity, claiming he was under psychosis when he released fire on the Navy Seal and his friend. A veteran of the Iraq war, he had been diagnosed with schizophrenia since becoming a soldier.
