Shot: Rosa died in this home.

Bruce Fanning, 59, of Mason County, discovered a stranger showering in one of the two residencies that he owns Saturday at around 8 a.m., Mason County Sheriff's Lt. Travis Adams said. He entered his business on Saturday morning to find that a break-in had occurred and that the intruder was in the bathroom taking a shower, the sheriff's office said.

A report via the Olympian cited Fanning saying he told the intruder to leave, but according to Fanning, Rosa replied with "non-understandable verbal threats". Fanning said the man taking a shower popped his head out, and Fanning said "it seemed like he was drunk". The victim was shot multiple times with a handgun before Fanning called the police.

He was arrested for investigation of second-degree murder.

The Belfair, Washington homeowner was arrested after reporting the April 1 incident at his business.

It's unclear how long Rosa had been inside the home, but detectives don't believe the homeowner gave him any warning before shooting. Spurling says that under Washington law there is no "duty to retreat" for property owners-but he notes that Fanning did retreat, then "reintroduced himself to the situation". When he found Rosa had not left, he told investigators he shot him three times through the shower curtain.

A magistrate set Fanning's bail at $250,000 and scheduled the man's court appearance on Monday.

Detectives have yet to say why the homeowner declined to call authorities after having first come upon the intruder, only to return a second time with a weapon.

The sheriff's office said in a press release on Monday that the evidence does not support "reasonable self-defense".

State law allows people to use their feelings of being threatened when deciding whether to use lethal force to defend themselves, but the danger must be imminent and threaten life or serious bodily injury.
