Reported prowler killed at Vancouver home

VANCOUVER, Wash. — Police in Vancouver have arrested a resident in the fatal shooting of a reported prowler at the man’s home.

Police spokeswoman Kim Kapp said Sean Doucette, 27, was arrested for investigation of second-degree murder and booked into the Clark County Jail.

An initial call from the scene at about 4 a.m. Tuesday reported a prowler near a home. Kapp says police received another call minutes later saying the prowler had been shot.

The dead man was not immediately identified.

KATU-TV in Portland, Ore., quoteed First Response Inc. president Dave Foglio as saying Doucette is a security guard in the company’s patrol division.

The Columbian reports that tax records show the Vancouver property is owned by Sean and Rachelle Doucette.
