MIRA LOMA - A 24-year-old Costa Mesa man was shot to death when he tried to break into a home Sunday, the Riverside County Sheriff's Department said.
The man has not been publicly identified, pending notification of next of kin.
A woman suspected of helping the man break into a home in the 3100 block of Chardoney Way in Mira Loma Sunday morning was arrested last night.
The man and woman had attempted a home invasion robbery at the house, and during a struggle with one of the residents, the man dropped his gun, authorities said.
A resident picked up the gun and shot the robber to death, authorities said.

let that be a lesson to crooks everywhere, if you break into a home with a gun the homeowner may take it from you and shoot you.
This is "level 1" morality exhorting "level 0" morality to see the error of its ways. If only it would.
Jules: “Now Yolanda, we’re not gonna do anything stupid, are we? . . . Yolanda, I thought you said you were gonna be cool. Now when you yell at me, it makes me nervous. And when I get nervous, I get scared.”
I thought that it was kinda nice of him to bring a gun so that they could shoot him.
Fantastic. Should have shot the accomplice as well. California cops treat burglary like it’s nothing. It’s a violent crime that psychopaths use to finance their degenerate lives, and it often leads to identity theft, rape, armed robbery, and murder. Burglars should be given 20 years first offense, no parole. That would take 90% of the psychopaths off the streets for two decades.
I prefer this victim's method of taking psychopaths off the streets. It's for longer than two decades. Much longer.
Democrats with unyielding liberal leanings consider armed robbery and burglary as a mere transfer of wealth and is justified because the government has failed to confiscate the victim’s unjustly(earned) wealth.
Don’t bring a gun to a fist fight......
You might get shot.
So is the home owner going to be charged for firing a stolen gun that killed somebody?
Wouldn’t surprise me these days...
Wonderful way to start the week! A story with a happy ending...
oh man... anything is possible now a days.
A truly heart warming feel good story.
My understanding is that if you commit a crime, any crime, and someone (anyone) dies as a result of that crime, then you can be charged for a homicide.
Aren’t the gun-grabbers always telling us that a gun-owner is far more likely to shoot himself of a family memeber than an intruder?
This case is a little of both!
Another words the home owner may have violated the rights of the robber.
Yes the robber brought a gun, but that was to protect him from any robbers in the area. He had no intention of harming the home owner.
The robbers family may have a civil case here.
You're correct. And this will probably go into the column of people who are shot with their own gun during a crime, and used as an argument against gun ownership . . . "A person with a gun is X times more likely to have the gun taken away and used against him during a violent crime than to protect himself with the gun."
It's an Alice in Wonderland approach to gun control, but then most of the invented statistics gun grabbers use are nonsense, anyway.
Could be cute but looks deeply troubled. Could be because her boyfriend just died and she’s going to jail. Big Bertha will really like her.
Homeowner to thug: Thanks for the pistol, now go to hell.
What about firing a weapon that wasn’t registered to the shooter?
That’s a big deal here in California...
(I’m being facetious, but who knows...)
The homeowner may be in some sh%8. He may find out that it would have been better for him to have been robbed than go through the crap the ACLU and the courts might take him through. Could clearly depend on the race of the robber. We know the cops caught a blondie who was with the perp.
Okay, so I’m jumping the gun, but it is California. I raise a toast to the homeowner for taking care of the business.
Lets hope the Police and the DA pats him on the back and lets him get back to a normal life.
I guess one out of two aint too bad.
To carry your thought a bit further, the homeowner might be in some hot water. If the perp dropped his gun and the homeowner picked it up and had control of the firearm, where is the rationale for deadly force? The perp is now unarmed and might not be a threat anymore.
I don’t like it either, but that may be how the DA’s look at this.
