The public may never see the video that allegedly shows the fatal Pasco County movie theater shooting – that's if attorneys get their way.
In front of a Pasco County judge on Tuesday, attorneys on both sides argued why they thought that video should remain sealed.
Though they say the video is not graphic in nature – likely because of the blurriness of it – they believe the public does not have the right to see the argument that led to the death of Chad Oulson.
Curtis Reeves, a 71-year-old retired police officer, is charged with shooting Oulson. Police said the shooting was over texting during the previews.
Witnesses said Oulson may have thrown a popcorn bag at Reeves before he was shot, with his wife by his side. She was in court with her attorneys Tuesday as well.
The judge said since the defense has just received the video, he would delay the decision on its release until likely Wednesday. Attorneys representing the media are expected to argue in favor of the video's release at the hearing.
Reeves also finds out if he will remain in jail. He's been held ever since the shooting, though his attorneys claim he should be released because he acted in self-defense.
The defense is also expected to issue an official not guilty plea, and the judge will likely set a trial date.
