Sure, an armed citizenry would have helped make folks safer.
(An Orlando police officer mistakenly shot and killed an innocent woman during a confrontation with a gunman at a downtown bar early Tuesday, according to a preliminary investigation by the Police Department.
The victim, identified as club patron Maria Fernanda Godinez, 22, was shot just before 1 a.m. at the Vixen Bar on South Orange Avenue, Orlando police Chief John Mina said.
Police were called after a complaint about a man with a gun outside the club who was banging on the door. The suspect was identified as 23-year-old Kody Roach, described in a 911 call by a bar employee as "a gun-wielding maniac.""There was a guy who was kicked out of a bar because he was too drunk and now he's waving his handgun," the employee told a police dispatcher. "I had to run inside and lock my door before he did something stupid."
