Police arrested a northeast Vancouver man for shooting and killing an alleged prowler outside his house early Tuesday morning.
Vancouver police took a report of suspicious circumstances at 14802 N.E. 33rd St. at 3:53 a.m. Four minutes later, police were called to the same address for a report that the prowler had been shot outside of a residence, said Kim Kapp, Vancouver police spokeswoman.
Sean H. Doucette, 27, was later booked into the Clark County Jail on suspicion of second-degree murder. Doucette does not have a criminal record, according to the Washington Courts website. He is expected to make a first appearance in Clark County Superior Court this morning.
The identity of the individual shot by Doucette was not available from authorities pending positive identification by the Clark County Medical Examiner’s Office, according to a news release from the Vancouver Police Department.
However, KATU-TV reported the man is Iosif Dumitrash, 19, of Portland.
Kapp did not say whether the two 911 calls were made by the same person, but she said no one else is being sought in relation to the incident.
