Records: Florida man accused in theater shooting, argument over texting also was using phone

Records show that a retired police captain who reportedly shot a man in a movie theater because he was texting had sent a text message to his own son moments before the incident.

According to records released Thursday by prosecutors, Curtis Reeves texted his son, who was on his way to the theater, saying that he was already inside.

The 71-year-old Reeves is charged with second-degree murder in the killing of Chad Oulson on Jan. 13.

Reeves is being held without bail in the Pasco County Jail. His attorneys say Reeves acted in self-defense. Reeves told police that the 43-year-old Oulson hit him in the face, possibly with a cellphone. Other witnesses, including Reeves' wife, say they never saw Oulson strike Reeves.
