BEXARCOUNTY- He was sitting in his house off of Oldham Road in Bexar County, when 62-year-old Roger Clanton said he heard four gun shots.

Despite his age and his handicap (Clanton need a cane and sometimes a wheelchair to get around), he said he did what he had to do.

Leaving his cane by his bed, Clanton said ran outside with his gun in his hand.

There he saw a woman, 20-year-old Katie Fierro, shot to death, a baby shot in the head, and a man with a gun.

I wasn't going to let him shoot that baby again, said Clanton.

So this 62-year-old man stood between the shooter and the baby.

Clanton said he told the man don t even think about it.

The shooter, later identified as 20-year-old Landon Keller, ran into his house.

I had a tear drop in this eye for the baby and tombstone in this eye for him, he said.

Clanton said he kept his gun pointed at the door Keller went inside until deputies showed-up.

Inside the Bexar County home, Keller shot himself.

The 11-month-old baby, Cayden Fierro, survived the gunshot to the head.

Clanton said the baby s grandmother told him the baby is now breathing on his own.

I just feel like the Lord put me where I was suppose to be, and I was going to do what I had to do, he said.
