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.
