Instead of calling the police, Fanning is accused of walking next door to his residential home, getting a.45 handgun, then returning to his business home and shooting Rosa while he stood naked and unarmed in the shower.
The homeowner, who has not been identified, was arrested on second-degree murder charges, the sheriff's office said.
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. After noticing the door was kicked in, Fanning found Rosa in the shower and yelled at him to get off his property. Fanning told police he thought the stranger was drunk and became afraid when the stranger made threats toward him.
According to detectives, the homeowner shot the intruder, who he found in the shower, multiple times, killing him.
Rosa, 31, was from Bothell, Washington. "There is more to the story that cannot be released yet". Now, the man accused of shooting the teacher may face first-degree murder charges.
