Bail granted to movie theater shooting suspect

July 11, 2014

DADE CITY, Fla. (AP) — A Florida judge has ruled that the former police captain accused in a fatal Pasco County theater shooting should be released with bail set at $150,000.

Pasco County Judge Pat Siracusa ruled Friday that 71-year-old Curtis Reeves Jr. must remain at home except to go to church, the doctor's office or the grocery store. He also must surrender firearms.

Reeves is accused of shooting 43-year-old Chad Oulson in the chest at the theater after the two argued over Oulson's apparent refusal to stop texting while movie previews were being shown.

Reeves' attorneys say their client fired in self-defense.

Earlier in the day, a state appellate court ruled that Reeves should have been released on bond or be told why he was not.
