Of course, the armed citizen doesn't need a permit to carry the gun in his vehicle, but we don't expect the Sentinel to get complex things like that correct.A Good Samaritan shot and killed an armed man this morning who was beating a woman with a bottle at an Ocoee gasoline station, police said.
Records show that sometime before 10:50 p.m., the witness -- whose name has not been released -- was parked in his SUV outside the Kangaroo Gas Station at 400 Franklin Street. At some point, he heard a woman screaming in the gas station's convenience store.
"All I heard was the woman screaming, 'Help! Help! Help!' "the witness said.
The witness ran out of his car and into the store. He saw the suspect beating a female clerk with a bottle. The witness ran back into his car, grabbed his handgun and returned to the store. He fired at least two shots, killing the suspect.
He called 911 and explained what had happened at the gas station.
Rescue crews transported the store clerk to Health Central Hospital with head injuries.
Investigators did not release the names of the victim or suspect. It is unclear if the witness had a permit to carry his handgun.

Sounds like the clerk was lucky that this guy happened along when he did.
