“Condolences to the family, that’s something really sad to happen. Honestly, realistically, something needs to be done because it isn’t safe to go downtown no more. Something’s it needs to be done,” one witness told Channel 9.

This all comes just a few months after the city of Orlando pushed for more safety measures, along with initiating its “SAFE program” — offering incentives for businesses to install and enforce security measures to help deter crime.
