    (CNN) -- A retired police officer is accused of shooting a man dead during an argument over texting in a Florida movie theater Monday afternoon, police said.
    The victim's wife also was wounded when the shooter pulled a handgun and fired once before the afternoon showing of the war film "Lone Survivor" at the theater complex in Wesley Chapel, Pasco County Sheriff Chris Nocco said.

    The suspect, Curtis Reeves, is a retired Tampa police officer and will be charged with second-degree homicide, Nocco said.

    Nocco identified the victims as Chad and Nicole Oulson, who he said were sitting in a row in front of Reeves and his wife.

    "There was an altercation because the victim was using his cell phone. He was texting," Nocco said. "This led to a verbal altercation, the verbal altercation escalated."
    Reeves, 71, pulled out a .380-caliber handgun and as Nicole Oulson raised her hand, the shooter fired once, Nocco said.
    A witness said the shooting happened during previews to the movie. Charles Cummings told reporters that Chad Oulson, 43, sat two seats from him and his son. Reeves was upset by Oulson's cell phone use and the two argued, Reeves then got up and left the theater for a brief time, Cummings said.

    yes, I saw it. He did a good job and it's an amazing story. I also watched many Marcus Latrell interviews, as fucked up as being the lone survivor made him, he still went back and did 2 more tours

    Retired cops should never be allowed to own fire arms. If the retired cop clubbed the guy that would have been fine.

    What I don't understand is if someone's being obnoxious in a movie theater, why don't they exit the theater, find the manager, drag his/her ass into the theater, point at the offenders and have them ejected?

    I'm sure even if this wouldn't be something you would do, I'm sure you could think of at least six other things to do before unloading a fucking weapon into the asshole. :jj:
