Ohio suspect in the hospital after attacking a 72-year-old man. On tonight's Hero of the Day, Cam Edwards tells the story of Bert Watts, 72, who was driving home when Phillip Anderson, 24, cut him off twice before exiting his car and pointing a gun at the older man. Watts pulled out his legally owned Beretta and fired at his armed assailant, wounding him. Police say that Anderson allegedly targeted Watts because Watts was known to carry large amounts of cash, and he claims to have been the target of another recent robbery attempt in Springfield.
