The man described by a 911 caller as a “gun wielding maniac” who authorities say drew the fire of a police officer last week — including a stray shot that killed a bystander — now faces a murder charge, the Orlando Police Department said.

Kody Roach, 23, was shot and wounded by police outside Vixen Bar on Orange Avenue in downtown Orlando in the early hours of Aug. 19.

He was taken to a local hospital and survived, but 22-year-old innocent bystander Maria Fernanda Godinez, who apparently was struck by a stray shot from Officer Eduardo Sanguino’s gun, was fatally injured in the gunfire.
