Two career criminals shoot up a bar, and the bar owner shoots back. On tonight's Hero of the Day, Cam Edwards shares a story from Charlotte, North Carolina where Mark Bowens, 37, and Rodney Bowens, 45, opened fire on the Get-A-Way Lounge after they were kicked out. Bar owner Roosevelt Hinton, 67, grabbed a handgun and fired back, injuring one criminal and causing the other to flee. Mark Bowens, shot in the head and abdomen, has a lengthy criminal history including a second-degree murder conviction in Mecklenburg County. Two bar patrons were also injured, but Hinton's actions likely saved several lives.
