One man is dead, and another woman sustained non-life-threatening injuries, after shots were fired inside a Florida movie theater Monday in the Tampa-area. The victims were identified late Monday afternoon by the Pasco County Sheriff as Chad and Nicole Oulson.
Oulson was reportedly making noise and texting on his phone during a screening of “Lone Survivor” when a fellow movie-watcher grew angry, pulled a gun, and shot him. The suspected shooter was identified as Curtis Reeves, a retired Tampa police officer.
A Sumter County off-duty police officer and Good Samaritan held Reeves in custody until police arrived, according to the Pasco County Sheriff.
The Cobb Theater has closed pending an ongoing investigation.
