Pasco County prosecutors say they will give the surveillance video from Wesley Chapel Cobb Theater shooting to the defense team Tuesday at a hearing.

The video captured the moment when, prosecutors said, a former police officer Curtis Reeves shot Chad Oulson in a dispute over texting about three weeks ago. Generally state laws ban the release of videos depicting a killing.

Judge Pat Siracusa, who presided over the hearing, said he might want to see the video before making a ruling on it. The prosecutors said, the video itself was not graphic in nature.

Chad Oulson's widow Nicole said she didn't mind the video disclosure to the defense. Reeves' defense lawyers mentioned the video needed to be released to the media in the responsible way.

So far the video was not given to any media outlets. There is a temporary injunction in release of the video until Wednesday.
