Detectives have arrested a homeowner for fatally shooting an intruder he found taking a shower in his Mason County home.

Rosa, 31, was from Bothell, Washington.

The Mason County Sheriff's Office said in a post to Twitter that "there is more to the story".

Fanning, who appeared at a bail hearing on Monday, told police that he found Rosa in the shower of his second home, which he uses for his online business selling knives, blowguns and paintball guns. When he arrived next door he saw a screen window punched out and the door kicked in. The arrest has already led to some internet controversy, with many discussing whether a second-degree murder charge was appropriate.

Fanning phoned 911 after the fatal incident, though offered no explanation as to why he shot the man before he called police, the Olympian reported.

The homeowner called 911 and said that he had shot and killed an intruder, Adams told KOMO.

Fanning left, got his handgun, and Spurling said he "reintroduced himself to the situation and shot".

'Certainly he had an opportunity to call law enforcement at that time, ' Adams said.

Nathaniel Rosa is seen in a photo obtained by KCPQ. His arraignment has been scheduled for April 10.

"The Mason County Sheriff's Office found during the initial investigation that the facts, statements and evidence in this case do not support necessary / reasonable self-defense at this time". Additionally, they're saying that Fanning did not give Rosa warning before shooting him.

Washington does not have a "castle doctrine", which is a law that exonerates homeowners for using deadly force against an intruder.
