A Washington state man was arrested on suspicion of second-degree murder after police said he shot and killed an intruder who was showering inside his house.

Bruce Fanning, 59, of Mason County, discovered a stranger showering in one of the two residencies that he owns Saturday at around 8 a.m., Sheriff’s Lt. Travis Adams said. Adams added that Fanning runs a business out of a second property.

Fanning told investigators that he ran from the scene, grabbed a gun and then returned and shot the intruder, court documents showed. Fanning told police he thought the stranger was drunk and claimed he became afraid when the stranger made threats toward him, Q13 Fox reported.
