Fox2 Newsmaker: Dan McNamara Protects Home from Intruder

Faced with an armed intruder holding him and his wife at gunpoint in their own home, Dan McNamara had a choice: Wait until the burglar was done and let him go -- hoping no one would be hurt -- or take stock of his surroundings and find his own gun to even things out.

He chose the latter, and when the opportunity arose, he went for his own gun and chased the thief off. He fired multiple shots as the suspect fled, striking him once in the leg.

McNamara  visited the Fox2 Studios Saturday morning to discuss the harrowing ordeal and how he and his wife avoided a potential tragedy.
