Homeowner arrested after fatally shooting intruder he found in his shower

Posted April 05, 2017

Police say Fanning only called 911 after he shot Rosa, but should have called before. The intruder was identified as 31-year-old Nathaniel Joseph Rosa. You may reserve your judgement [sic] until facts are out'. After noticing the door was kicked in, Fanning found Rosa in the shower and yelled at him to get off his property.

A popular special needs teacher is dead after making the fatal mistake of taking a shower in a stranger's Belfair, Washington, home on Satruday without permission.

That's when Fanning told police he left his office, walked to his home next door, got a handgun and returned to shoot Rosa several times.

Belfair resident Bruce F. Fanning, 59, appeared Monday in Mason County Superior Court on one count of second-degree murder.

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

That will be the focus of the president's April 6-7 meeting with Xi at his Florida resort, she said . Former defence secretary Ash Carter, however, said he doubted that Beijing will co-operate.

The Mason County Sheriff's Office responded to some of the concerns over Twitter, writing that people should wait until more information is released before making judgments. 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".

Sheriff's Lt. Travis Adams said the man runs a business out of a building on the second property. "And we've contacted our local prosecutor, explained the circumstances to him, and he agrees that second-degree murder was an appropriate charge in this case".

Fanning made a brief court appearance Monday, and a judge set bail at $250,000.

Sheriff's investigators said they didn't find evidence to support necessary or reasonable self-defense, according to the statement.

"Fanning first told the intruder to leave and the intruder aggressively responded with non-understandable verbal threats", reads the probable cause affidavit.
