VANCOUVER, WA (KPTV) -
A murder suspect accused of shooting and killing a suspected prowler is out on bail.
Sean Doucette was released from jail at about 4:30 p.m. Thursday. His bail was set at $250,000.
Doucette, 27, appeared in court Wednesday. He was arrested the previous day after the death of Iosif Dumitrash, 19.
Investigators said Doucette returned home from work at about 4 a.m. Tuesday and heard a car alarm go off across the street. Doucette has worked for First Response Inc., a security services company, for four years.
Doucette told his wife to call 911 while he went to try to contain the suspected prowler, his attorney said.
Detectives cited information from an independent witness who told them Doucette and Dumitrash fought and then fell on the ground. When they fell, both men separated from each other, and Dumitrash "began to walk away," authorities said.
That's when Doucette fired the fatal shots, according to court documents.
A spokesman for First Response said Doucette is licensed by the Oregon Department of Public Safety Standards and Training as an armed security guard and owns his own weapon.
Doucette is due back in court for a formal arraignment on second-degree murder charges Feb. 12.
