DADE CITY, Fla. (AP) - Prosecutors have handed over an external hard drive containing hours of surveillance video from a movie theater where a retired Tampa police officer is accused of shooting and killing another man during an argument over texting.

Attorneys for 71-year-old Curtis Reeves received the hard drive Tuesday morning. A Pasco County judge could rule during a Wednesday bond hearing whether the video will be made available to the public.

The footage is expected to show Reeves entering the Wesley Chapel theater Jan. 13 to watch “Lone Survivor” and the shooting of 43-year-old Chad Oulsen and the wounding of his wife.

Prosecutors initially were unwilling to hand over the video. They claimed their office was not equipped to turn around copies of the video so quickly.

Reeves is being held without bail, charged with second-degree murder.
