(CNN) — It started with a father sending text messages during the previews of an afternoon movie.

It ended with the 43-year-old father shot dead amid the theater seats, and a 71-year-old retired police officer in custody.

Charged with second-degree murder, the ex-cop is set to make his first court appearance Tuesday.

The encounter between the victim and the shooter began during an afternoon showing of the Robert Redford film “Lone Survivor” at the Grove 16 theater in the Tampa suburb of Wesley Chapel. The former officer, Curtis Reeves, was with his wife and sat behind Chad Oulson and his wife. Chad Oulson was using his cell phone and Reeves told him to put it away, according to police and witnesses.
