Newtown police arrested a man accused of shooting a door to break in to a residence.
Police say they were called to a home on Andras Road around 4 a.m. Sunday for reports of gunshots. When they arrived they found the suspect, identified as 27-year-old Michael Dziubina of Newtown, standing near a broken exterior door with a small pistol in his hand. Dziubina was taken into custody without incident.
Investigation led police to believe that Dziubina fired at the exterior door of the occupied residence to gain entry. Dziubina is charged with home invasion, first-degree burglary, first-degree reckless endangerment, unlawful discharge of a firearm and first degree criminal mischief. He was held on $100,000 bond and is expected in Danbury Superior Court on 12/7/15
