Learing More About A Hero

We're learning about the volunteer security guard from the Colorado Springs church shooting.

Jeanne Assam returned fire on Matthew Murray several times after he entered the church on Sunday.

We're also learning that Assam was fired from her job as a Minneapolis police officer in the 1990s for lying.

New life senior pastor Brady Boyd says church officials were aware of her past when she was hired for security there.

Boyd says everyone has things buried in their past and she shouldn't be "convicted or crucified for being a heroine."
