Most recent of many local armed robberies stopped by armed citizen. On tonight's Hero of the Day, Cam Edwards shares a story from Joliet, Illinois where there have been at least five armed robberies in the last three weeks. When two teenagers clad in dark hoodies entered the Gardner Food Mart and held a handgun to the clerk's face, however, they weren't prepared for the employee to defend himself. The clerk was able to retrieve a handgun from below the counter and fire three rounds at the robbers, causing them to flee. No one was injured in the incident, and the victims are safe.
