Man Shoots, Kills Intruder In Powdersville
Struggle Over Gun Ends In Shooting

POSTED: 10:43 am EDT October 26, 2004

POWDERSVILLE, S.C. -- Sheriff's deputies are at the scene of a fatal shooting in Powdersville on Tuesday morning.


Detectives and a deputy talk at a home where a man was shot to death after allegedly assaulting the homeowner.

Anderson County Sheriff's Office Capt. Dale McCard told WYFF News 4's Myra Ruiz that David Devita, 47, and his 7-year-old daughter were in their Mountain View Court home when Devita's daughter said someone was at the door at about 8:30.

McCard said that when Devita answered the door, he was hit with pepper spray by the man outside, Michael Donald Cikanowick, who forced his way inside.

McCard said Cikanowick kept using the pepper spray on Devita and his daughter. The two men struggled into a bedroom, where Devita retrived a gun.

McCard said that during the struggle, Devita shot Cikanowick.

Cikanowick, 36, of Simpsonville, died at the scene.

McCard said investigators are trying to determine why Cikanowick attacked Devita.

"The homeowner did not recognize this individual. He may be known to the homeowner, may be related to someone the homeowner works with," McCard said.

Ok, enlighten me. I read the story as Devita is the homeowner, who shot the BG.

It seems the police understand there was self defence. They are looking for the cause of the BG assaulting with the pepper spray, methinks. Right?

We had something like this in St. Louis a month or two back, same MO, same response, same results.

Does this mean I am NOT paranoid if I always answer the door with a gun in hand?

Doesn't everybody open the door with a gun in their hand?

And the DARWIN award winner is.....

Never bring "pepper spray" to a gun fight.
