Woman: Theater shooter confronted her over texting, too

A separate couple have come forward with their own story of a confrontation they say happened between them and the man accused of shooting and killing a father in a Pasco movie theater.

During a first appearance for Curtis Reeves, 71, the retired cop accused of firing a shot that killed Chad Oulsen, 43, prosecutor Manny Garcia asked for no bail. He said eyewitnesses never saw Oulson threaten or strike Reeves.

Then he brought up the case of Jamira Dixon, who contacted detectives after the shooting and told of a similar run-in with Reeves. On Dec. 28, she said Reeves confronted her for texting during a movie. She said he was glaring at her, and that he even followed her to the restroom.

Dixon said her husband thought of confronting Reeves, but didn't. "It could have been us," she told Bay News 9.

Jamira Dixon, shown with her husband, Michael, described a previous encounter with Reeves over texting in a movie theater.
