Texas (KETK) — The funeral procession for Chris Kyle, American Sniper and author who was shot to death at a gun range in Texas, began Tuesday morning.
The procession will travel 200 miles from Midlothian, TX to Texas State Cemetery in Austin, where Kyle will be buried.
They will be passing through the Waco area on Interstate 35, and will be accompanied by military personnel, first responders, and the Patriot Guard Riders.
Several hundred cars, motorcycles and buses are expected to be in the procession.
Kyle was shot and killed last month while allegedly working with a veteran who suffered from Post Traumatic Stress Disorder.
