On this edition of Hero of the Day, Cam Edwards shares two armed citizen stories. The first comes from Eugene, Oregon where a coffee shop barista shot and killed an armed robber during a hold up. The robber already had the cash and appeared to still intend to shoot the barista. The second story comes from Cook County, Illinois where a man walked into a tanning bed and found 48-year-old Gary Amaya who had threatened and tied up two women while holding up the establishment. After trying to talk him down, the armed citizen shot and killed Amaya. Amaya's gun was traced back to the "Honey Bee Killer" shootings months before that left one man dead and two wounded.
