North Carolina man is wounded by home invader, then shoots back. On tonight's Hero of the Day, Cam Edwards tells a story from Halifax, NC, where Marcel Alston woke up to find 61-year-old Carlton Burgess outside of his home. Burgess followed Alston inside and shot him in the buttocks before Alston was able to retrieve his own gun from the bedroom and shoot the intruder fatally in the chest. Carolyn Burgess, Carlton's wife, says that her husband had been fixated on the idea that she and Alston had an affair several years ago.
