BELFAIR, Wash. -- Detectives with the Mason County Sheriff's Office were called to a house on East Trails Road in Belfair just after 8 a.m. Saturday morning.
The complete circumstances of the confrontation were not immediately released, but detectives said the intruder was shot several times while in a shower at the home.
Investigators said the homeowner cooperated during interviews, then was booked on suspicion of second-degree murder when more details came to light.
The Mason County Sheriff's Office took to social media late Saturday afternoon, encouraging the public to await further information, rather than rush to judgment.
The Mason County Coroner identified the man killed as Nathaniel Joseph Rosa, 31, of Bothell.
An autopsy is scheduled for Monday.
