Keith Ratliff the creator of the YouTube channel FPSRussia, was found dead on January 3rd 2013 killed by a single shot to the head, his body was found in his office where Keith stored many of the handguns and high-powered rifles that he and Kyle Myers use on the show.

The channel which has over 3.4 million subscribers and over 500 million views has been going strong for nearly 3 years now, with a ton of support from their gun enthusiast following, Keith will surely be missed.

Authorities have said that there were no signs of struggle at the scene, leading to believe that Ratliff’s killer may have been someone he knew, according to the New York Times his brother told the WBSTV Station the following, “For him not to pull out that gun and try to defend himself, he had to feel comfortable around somebody,” continuing to say “Either that or he was ambushed.” (It does say that the mother quoted this on NYT but it was actully his brother according to the station.

I’m not going to go into the links with the Sandy Hook Elementary situation with this article like most sites, I will just leave with a thought that Myers shared with has Facebook followers earlier this week, “As many of you already know I lost a close friend this week, I ask only that you show respect to the situation for the family’s sake.”
