Student Defender

A Georgia college student defends 10 people from two armed invaders. On today's Hero of the Day, Cam Edwards tells a frightening story from Atlanta in which two masked men burst in on a college birthday party. The attackers divided the men and the women into two rooms and held them at gunpoint until one of the male students pulled a gun from a backpack and fired at one of their aggressors, who ran away. The armed student then went into the room where the women were being held and witnessed the other criminal holding one of the victims down with the apparent intention of raping her. The student fired on the would-be rapist, identified as Calvin Lavant. Lavant was found dead near his own apartment that was located only one building away.
