Looks like the Florida gunman who shot and killed a man texting his 3-year-old daughter during a screening of Lone Survivor isn’t a first-time offender.

According to another couple who visited the same Grove 16 theater complex where Chad Oulson was shot to death on Monday, Curtis Reeves is really ticked off by texting… and everything in general.

Two weeks earlier, Michael and Jamira Dixon were viewing a matinee showing of The Hobbit: The Desolation of Smaug, when they noticed a man they identified as Reeves “bothered by everything” in the same row.

Jamira Dixon said she sent a text at 2:20 p.m. and an usher told her that she needed to put the phone away or she would have to leave the theater.

The man she identified as Reeves was sitting in the same row and talked with the usher afterward and gesticulated at her and her group, she said. She said she was there with her husband, three of her children and a niece.

Jamira Dixon is sure the man was Reeves because, she said, she made it a point to remember his face in case she went to file a complaint about him with theater management.

When another man’s cell phone went off during the movie, Jamira Dixon said that Reeves leaned over and snarled at the guy on the phone.

“Can you please, please turn that off. It’s really disturbing me,” the man said, according to Dixon.

After hearing about Monday’s shooting, the Dixons gave their account of their run-in with Reeves, telling authorities about his disdain for texting, but saying the man never used foul language towards them. He did, however, keep his eyes angrily on them from the front row.

“As the (day) went on he just glared and glared and was grumbling the whole (time),” Jamira Dixon said.

“I don’t think he saw much of the movie,” Michael Dixon said.

Reeves was charged with second-degree murder for Monday’s shooting. And now authorities know — Reeves is a stickler (and ridiculously so) about putting your phone away during the movie.

Our thoughts and prayers go out to the Oulson family.
