On tonight's Hero of the Day, Cam Edwards reports that 11-year-old Alyssa Gutierrez of Albuquerque, New Mexico reacted courageously when she was confronted by a trio of intruders in her home. Gutierrez had been left at home alone for a few minutes by her cousins when the suspects entered the home and began discussing plans to steal firearms. The girl ran into her mother's room and armed herself with a rifle, which she had only learned how to shoot a few days previously. The suspects fled the home and were picked up by police, along with their alleged getaway driver. Originally aired 8/12/2010.
