  • The Perfect World (1993) [Robert 'Butch' Haynes]: Shot in the chest (having been shot in the stomach by T.J. Lowther) with a sniper rifle by Bradley Whitford who thinks Kevin is going for a gun as Clint Eastwood looks on in shock, he dies whilst looking up at a helicopter as he lies in a field.
