Angola Man Jailed Following Home Invasion And Gunfire

An Angola man is behind bars today at the DeKalb County Jail, with­out bond, after he allegedly exchanged gun­fire with an off duty Kendal­lville Police Offi­cer Tues­day night. 21-year-old Tyler Gaiski is now fac­ing felony charges of attempted mur­der, bur­glary and tor­tur­ing an ani­mal. It all began when DeKalb County Com­mu­ni­ca­tions got a call about a break­ing and enter­ing in progress from a man who said his par­ents were out of town and that he had stopped by their home to feed their dog. A neigh­bor, who also just hap­pens to be a Kendal­lville Police offi­cer was called by the man also. That offi­cer saw a car backed up to the house with a man sit­ting in the dri­vers seat. When he shined a flash­light on the guy and iden­ti­fied him­self, and told the dri­ver to show his hands, the man pointed a gun at him and began shoot­ing. The offi­cer returned fire as he quickly took cover along with the man who reported it all. The other guy sped off, but drove off of West County Line Road, where the vehi­cle rolled over, yet he still man­aged to escape. K-9 units were called in, and Gaiski was found and taken into cus­tody. A Labrador Retriever was killed dur­ing the home invasion.
