Man killed in Fla. theater over dispute on cellphone use, police say

WESLEY CHAPEL, Fla. (AP) — Authorities say a man has been arrested on suspicion of shooting two people — one fatally — after an argument over cellphone use at a Florida theater.

Pasco County Sheriff’s spokesman Doug Tobin said two couples had been watching ‘‘Lone Survivor’’ Monday at a movie theater in Wesley Chapel, north of Tampa, when the suspect and his wife apparently took issue with the couple in front of them over use of the phones.

Tobin said the argument led to the shooting. Both victims were taken by ambulance to a Tampa-area hospital. The man later died, but the female victim’s injuries weren’t considered life-threatening.

The sheriff’s office says a bystander detained the suspect until deputies arrived. Authorities didn’t immediately identify the suspect.

No charges have been reported.
