Wife of theater shooting victim says she's recovering from gunshot wound, focused on daughter

The wife of a man who was shot and killed during an argument over texting at a movie theater says her "whole world just got shattered in a million pieces."

Nicole Oulson cried during a news conference Wednesday at her attorney's office in Tampa.

She says she's recovering from being shot in the hand, and is focusing on their nearly 2-year-old daughter.

She and her husband, Chad Oulson, were in a movie theater Jan. 13 when he was shot during an argument with another man.

Curtis Reeves, a 71-year-old retired police officer, is charged with the second-degree murder and is being held without bail.

Friends of the couple say Chad Oulson was texting their daughter's baby sitter when the fight erupted during movie previews.
