A Mason County homeowner has been arrested on second-degree murder charges after an intruder was shot multiple times while in the shower on the homeowner’s property, according to a tweet from the Mason County Sheriff’s Office.
The incident occurred on East Trails Road, south of Belfair, about 8 a.m. Saturday.
Authorities said the homeowner left his house to check on neighboring property he also owns when the shooting occurred. Sheriff’s Lt. Travis Adams said the man runs a business out of a building on the second property.
When the homeowner arrived on the second property, he told deputies he found a screen had been taken off the window and the door kicked in. The homeowner went back to his home, got a gun, returned to the other house and shot the intruder multiple times, detectives said.
Mason County Coroner Wes Stockwell identified the deceased as Nathaniel Joseph Rosa, 31, of Bothell. An autopsy is scheduled for Monday.
