Cam Edwards tells the story of a man from Botetourt County, Virginia, who shot and killed an intruder to protect his family. The homeowner woke up to the sound of someone banging on the door at 10:40 p.m. After securing his family in a locked bedroom, he called 911 and loaded his 12-gauge shotgun. The intruder then used a patio chair to smash the window, at which point the homeowner fired his weapon before his family could be threatened any further. That's today's Hero of the Day.
