Man uses gun stowed in car to wound knife-wielding attacker. On today's Hero of the Day, Cam Edwards reports on August Peters, 74, of Houston, Texas, who was getting into his vehicle when Martin Baltazar, 18, grabbed him from behind and held a knife to his throat, demanding that he hand over the car keys. Peters managed to reach into the car and pull out a pistol, with which he shot Baltazar in the abdomen. The assailant fled through a nearby house and was arrested shortly afterwards.
