WESLEY CHAPEL, Fla. -- 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. Tobin says the 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.
