ORLANDO – Police say nine bullets were fired from an officer’s gun during a confrontation early Tuesday with an armed man outside a downtown Orlando nightclub, including a bullet that accidentally killed a female bystander inside the bar.

A police report released today says Officer Eduardo Sanguino fired nine times at Kody Roach after Roach ignored police instructions to get on the ground, a Taser failed to incapacitate Roach and Roach appeared to be reaching for his waistband.

Roach survived the shooting and was charged today with carrying a concealed weapon.

A 22-year-old bystander inside the bar was killed after she was struck by a stray bullet.

Roach was thrown out of the bar after security noticed he had a concealed gun.

The report says the gun was unloaded.
