On this edition of Hero of the Day, Cam Edwards shares a story from Malden, MA where Kathleen Becerra's son Jerry Bourque, 25, was sitting on a porch with a friend when two Boston men, Lakeem Tombs, 18, Virgilio Dipre, 18, approached him. After a brief exchange, Tombs and Dipre told Bourque and his friend to empty their pockets and then proceeded to pistol whip Bourque. One of the attackers began shooting, and Bourque struggled to get his legally owned handgun out for self-defense, but he ended up shooting through his clothes at the assailants. Tombs and Dipre were wounded fatally, Bourque is hospitalized with serious injuries. Originally aired 9/9/2010.
