Law enforcement went to the scene of a shooting at the Cobb Theater's Grove 16; CineBistro in Wesley Chapel, Fla., Monday, Jan. 13, 2014 CBS affiliate WTSP
WESLEY CHAPEL, Fla. (AP) -- Authorities say a retired Tampa police officer has been charged with fatally shooting a man during an argument over cellphone use at a Florida theater.
Pasco County Sheriff's spokeswoman Melanie Snow says that two couples had been watching "Lone Survivor" Monday at a movie theater in Wesley Chapel, north of Tampa. She says 71-year-old Curtis Reeves asked 43-year-old Chad Oulson to stop texting.
Pasco County Sheriff's spokesman Doug Tobin says that argument led to the shooting. Oulson and his wife, Nichole, were taken to a Tampa-area hospital where he later died. His wife's injuries weren't considered life-threatening.
The sheriff's office says an off-duty Sumter County deputy detained Reeves until police arrived.
Reeves has been charged with second-degree murder. It wasn't immediately clear if he had an attorney.
