    Arlington Man Arrested In Fatal Shooting Of Alleged Burglar - News Story - KIRO Seattle

    ARLINGTON, Wash. -- In what police say is an unusual case, a homeowner was arrested Wednesday night, accused of fatally shooting a man he said burglarized his house.
    Detectives said the incident started Monday when a 38-year-man called 911 to report a burglary at his home in the 22800 block of 37th Avenue Northeast in unincorporated Arlington.
    The man said he had returned home to find a burglar running out of his house, and found some of his wife’s jewelry was missing, a Snohomish County Sheriff's Department news release said.
    Police said deputies and a K-9 unit searched for the burglar but found no one.
    The news release said a few hours later, the man called 911 again and said the burglar had returned to the area. A deputy arrived to find the homeowner in the area looking for the burglar.
    Police said the homeowner told officers he spotted a man in a nearby ditch along the road and yelled at him to come out and talk to him, but the man ran off across a field and into a wooded area.
    The deputy checked the area where the homeowner said he had first spotted the man but found nothing.
    On Wednesday, a neighbor in the same area called 911 and reported finding a body in a small creek that runs through a field on his property in the 23400 block of 35th Avenue Northeast, police said. Police said the body was that of a 25-year-old Snohomish County man.
    Detectives said that during the course of the investigation, investigators learned that neighbors reported hearing gunshots Monday afternoon shortly before the homeowner called 911 the second time.
    One witness told police he talked to the homeowner who told him he had fired a couple of “warning shots” at the man the homeowner saw running away into the field and wooded area.
    On Wednesday night, detectives spoke to the homeowner who had called 911 twice Monday. Police said the man told them he was aware a body had been discovered in his neighborhood and that he was a part of the investigation. He then requested an attorney.
    Detectives arrested and booked the 38-year-old man into the Snohomish County Jail for investigation of second-degree murder.
    Police said the Snohomish County Medical Examiner examined the body at the scene and discovered what appeared to be a gunshot wound. He also found items on the man's person that appeared to be consistent with what the homeowner said was stolen in Monday’s burglary, police said.

    hunting for the suspect is a very bad idea. if they are out of your home, let the police find them.

    Well, his family will probably know which prison to send his mail to when it's all over. That was stupid... stupid... stupid. Chasing the guy because he's ticked his house was robbed, and shooting at him obviously when the guy ran, is all bad. There was no threat on life, and was not in his home protecting himself, his family, nor his property.

    Hate those "warning shots" in the back of a fleeing suspect.

    So if you shoot at somebody and miss is that then considered a "warning"

    Warning shots? He should hang out with the deer hunter that shot three college kids.

    Common sense certainly did not prevail here...could be a very costly mistake for the homeowner.
