Business owner thwarts robbery with his legally owned handgun. Today's Hero of the Day is from Shreveport, LA, where three men in ski masks attempted to rob Mitchell's Transmission as the local business was closing for the night. One of the criminals was armed with a sawed-off shotgun, but the owner had a firearm of his own and fired twice. The bad guys fled, and a wounded man showed up at an emergency room shortly thereafter who may have been shot while trying to rob Mitchell's Transmission. The link has not yet been positively confirmed.
