TAMPA, Fla. (WFLA.com) - Those who know and worked with Curtis Reeves at the Tampa Police Department say Monday's deadly shooting at a Wesley Chapel theater is totally out of character for Reeves, who is charged with second-degree homicide.
The department released Reeves' personnel file today. The 363-page file is filled with awards and letters of commendation and praise.
Jim Diamond is the director of operations for the West Central Florida Police Benevolent Association and worked side by side with Reeves on the SWAT team.
"He and I were, I was sitting in the right front seat of one of our vehicles when we were getting shot at at a hostage scenario. Always steady, always made the right decisions," said Diamond.
