Man Shot Dead For Texting During Movie


Miami Authorities say a retired police officer has been charged with fatally shooting a man during an argument over cellphone use at a Florida movie theatre.
Sheriff's spokesperson Melanie Snow said that two couples had been watching Lone Survivor at a movie theatre north of Tampa on Monday when the suspect and his wife apparently took issue with the couple in front of them over use of the phone.
Curtis Reeves, 71, asked Chad Oulson, 43, to stop texting. An argument led to the shooting.
Oulson and his wife, Nichole, were taken to a local hospital where he later died. His wife's injuries weren't considered life-threatening.
The sheriff's office says an off-duty deputy detained Reeves until police arrived.
Reeves has been charged with second-degree murder. It wasn't immediately clear if he had an attorney.
