Retired cop shoots movie goer for texting in the theater (WESLEY CHAPEL FL) (updated)

When two people wouldn’t stop texting and interrupting the movie, Chad and Nicole Oulson got into an argument with Reeves and his wife, who were sitting behind. He got up and went to complain to the manager and when he returned he began to argue with the couple when the X-cop pulled a gun and shot the man in the chest.

"The suspected decides to pull out a .380 (handgun), and he shoots the victim," Sheriff Chris Nocco said. "It's absolutely crazy that it would rise to this level of (violence) over somebody texting at a movie theater."

the circus rolls on as the lawyer claiming SYG because he was hit with popcorn:
