Everett Stone is the brother of the man who's being called a hero by world leaders, for stopping a train shooting in France. 23-year-old Spencer Stone is said to be the first to jump on the suspected Islamist militant who was carrying a machine gun. He and his two other American friends helped overpower the attacker. In Sacramento, Everett Stone was asked if he was proud of his brother. (SOUNDBITE) (English) EVERETT STONE, BROTHER OF U.S. AIR FORCE AIRMAN 1ST CLASS SPENCER STONE SAYING: "Pride is not an adequate enough word to describe how proud I am of him.
