Washington homeowner shot showering intruder 4 times through curtain

Bruce Fanning, 59, is now facing second-degree murder charges after he allegedly shot and killed Nathaniel Rosa, 31, who broke into his home and took a shower.

The Olympian reports (hhttps://goo.gl/qf78L7) 59-year-old Bruce Fanning appeared in court Monday on the charge and had bail set at $250,000. Fanning lives on the property, but in a separate structure and uses the building where Rosa was shot for his business.

The homeowner went inside and exchanged words with Rosa, who was in the shower, at the time, police said.

"He returned home, retrieved a firearm, came back over to the residence and fired multiple rounds into the shower ... killing the intruder", Mason County Sheriff's Lt. Travis Adams told ABC affiliate KOMO. Police say Fanning only called 911 after he shot Rosa, but should have called before.

Shot: Rosa died in this home.

The shooting victim was identified as Nathaniel Joseph Rosa, 31, of Bothell, according to Mason County Coroner Wes Stockwell.

Equal Pay Day Hypocrisy
Women in that age group earned 90 cents to the dollar earned by men, compared to the 67 cents they earned in 1980. That would mean more money to pay off student loans, put food on the table, and save for retirement.

Dorcy told the news station he believed a case could be made in support of a premeditated shooting, adding that he is looking into first-degree murder charges. "There is more to the story that cannot be released yet".

After having shot Rosa dead, Fanning called 911 and told dispatchers he had just killed someone who broke into his home. When he found Rosa had not left, he told investigators he shot him three times through the shower curtain.

"There is more to the story that can not be released yet", the office said in a Twitter post Saturday.

Bruce Fanning appeared in court on April 3, 2017.

While the state of Washington "has self-defense laws that protect property owners", Spurling said "use of deadly force must be necessary and reasonable".

When Fanning of Belfair approached and confronted him, Rosa allegedly began to threaten Fanning.
