A Tennessee robber picked the wrong victim and was fatally shot. On tonight's Hero of the Day, Cam Edwards tells the story of an off-duty police officer in Memphis, Tennessee, who was attacked in the parking lot of a usually nice, quiet apartment complex. The robber put a gun to the victim's head and demanded money at which point the officer pulled his gun and fired in self-defense.
