Victim of multiple robberies buys gun and takes a stand. On today's Hero of the Day, Cam Edwards reports on Javid Iqbal of Houston, Texas, who owns a cell phone store and has recently started carrying a gun on his wife's advice. When an armed robber jumped over the store's display case and approached Iqbal, the storeowner pulled out his gun and shot the intruder at close range. The robber and an accomplice fled the scene, but the wounded man collapsed in the doorway and died. Iqbal said that he was defending his wife, daughter, and father, all of whom were in the store at the time.
