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

A 22-year-old bystander, Maria Godinez Castillo, 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.
