NV woman fends off an intruder with her gun until police arrive. On tonight's Hero of the Day, Cam Edwards tells the story of this Nevada homeowner who awoke to the sound of her dog barking around 3:20 a.m. Upon a confrontation with a strange man in her backyard, she pointed her gun at him and retreated inside to call the police. The man began to bang on her window when she trained her gun on him again and informed him that she had called 9-1-1. The invader then jumped her fence and fled, though a screen was found removed from the woman's window.
