Orwin Manor is a ritzy little neighborhood in Orlando.
Within one of these overpriced homes near the intersection of Harmon and Wisconsin Avenue lives a couple, who like many Florida couples, made it onto our website.
As would anyone living in a city completely devoid of culture or quality entertainment, the girl living in this big house with her boyfriend became suicidal.
She picked up a gun (Florida homes usually have several lying around) and tried to evoke a pity party, telling her boyfriend that she was going to kill herself.
The boyfriend, who obviously has never read any Florida news, did the worst thing possible in this situation…
He called the cops.
They arrived, and did exactly what they’re trained to do. They shot her.
The woman was taken to the hospital with a gunshot wound that is not life-threatening, police said.
The Florida Department of Law Enforcement has taken over the investigation, as is standard for officer-involved shootings.
Authorities say a Florida police SWAT team shot and killed an armed woman who had been threatening suicide.
The Broward County Sheriff’s Office says a Sunrise Police SWAT team went to an apartment Friday where an armed woman had barricaded herself inside and was threatening to kill herself.
Sheriff’s spokeswoman Veda Coleman-Wright said in a press release Saturday the woman stopped communicating with officers, so the SWAT team entered the apartment. She says the officers encountered the woman and shots were fired. She died at the scene. No officers were hurt. Full Story »

ST. PETERSBURG — Uber driver Chad Farley suspected something was wrong Monday night when a passenger asked to be dropped off in the middle of the Sunshine Skyway Bridge.
There’s no walkway for pedestrians along the iconic span, nowhere even to step safely at the top. Walking on the Skyway 200 feet above the water is something people do when they’re contemplating a jump to their death, from the place that holds the grim distinction as Florida’s top spot for suicide.
