Recent self-defense shooting resembles another hero story. On today's Hero of the Day, Cam Edwards mentions the incident in which Harlem storeowner Charles Augusto Jr. shot four robbers and killed two. The story calls to mind another self-defense shooting that happened last November, when Youssouf Drame killed two intruders in his Crown Heights electronics store. Drame, who was shot seven times by the men, summed up his attitude in a few words: "I didn't come to America to die."
