Pasco County: “The victim was on his cell phone, he was texting. We believe he was making some kind of noise. This noise led to an altercation between the suspect and the victim,” Sheriff Chris Nocco explained.
A witness recalled hearing the victim say he was texting his 3-year-old daughter before the man behind him pulled out a pistol and shot the texting man, and his wife.
“Their voices start going up, there seems to be a confrontation, somebody throws popcorn, then bang, he was shot,” the witness — a former Marine — said. “He staggered two seats over, fell on my son and I.”
