DAYTONA BEACH, FL -- Police said an intruder was shot and killed after trying to break into a 82-year-old man's home early Thursday. According to police, the homeowner, Charles Robbins, 82, awoke around 6 a.m. to find a man trying to enter his home, near Woodland Avenue and A1A. Robbins said the intruder was wearing a ski mask, and had a hammer and a screwdriver. So he grabbed his World War II Russian handgun and shot the man through his door, and then called 911. When police arrived, they said they found the suspect, 24-year-old Tyler Orshoski, dead in the front yard. Police said they believe Orshoski was behind several recent burglaries in the same neighborhood. "The homeowner did something the criminal justice system couldn't do with this guy," said Daytona Beach police Chief Mike Chitwood. "We're familiar with the burglar. He put him out of business."Chitwood said the homeowner was within his rights to shoot the intruder, because he believed his life was in danger. Robbins says he would do it again if he had to. "Oh yeah, in a nano second," he said. "Better nobody try to break into my house or they'll get the same thing he did.” Robbins says his neighbors should arm themselves as well and shoot anyone who tries to break into their homes. Neighbors in the Beachside neighborhood said it was not the first time a fellow homeowner was forced to defend himself. Just last year a suspect tried breaking into a home down the street from Robbins. In that case, the suspect was shot and crawled to neighbor Dave Hill's home. "Twenty four years old, he died in my arms, and that was the first one. Then, there's one about four blocks down and this the third one now," described Hill. Homeowners living directly across from Robbins said they were not armed yet, but were thinking of buying a firearm after what happened.
