Attorney: theater shooting victim's wife recovering from hand surgery

The widow of Chad Oulson, the 43-year-old man killed in a Wesley Chapel movie theater shooting Monday, is recovering from surgery to her hand and will attend a bail reduction hearing next month for the man accused of killing her husband, her attorneys said Friday.

"Surgery was yesterday but was more extensive than expected," according to an updated statement sent from McIntyre, Panzarella, Thanasides, Bringgold & Todd, the law firm the family hired Thursday.

Attorney TJ Grimaldi also said the couple's 22-month-old daughter, Alexis, is coping well.

"Her understanding at this point is limited, but she has the strong support of multiple family members right now," he said.

Nicole Oulson, 33, was injured when the bullet that killed her husband hit her hand.

The bail reduction hearing for Curtis Reeves, the 71-year-old retired Tampa police captain charged with second-degree murder in Chad Oulson's death, has been set for Feb. 5 in Dade City. Reeves, who authorities say shot Oulson when he refused to stop texting, is being held at the Pasco County jail without bail.
