Prosecutor: Spokane-area man justified in shooting

SPOKANE -- The Spokane County prosecutor's office has ruled that a Newman Lake man was justified in fatally shooting a home intruder who yelled that nobody would be getting out of the house alive.
Sheriff's Deputy Craig Chamberlin announced the decision Tuesday in the May 13 shooting of Sean Parsons by Doug Snarski.
Parsons was an ex-boyfriend of Snarski's girlfriend. Hours before the shooting, Parsons had been served with a no-contact order, prohibiting him from contacting the woman.
Once inside the home, Parsons fired several rounds from two weapons at the homeowner.
Snarski dialed 911 after grabbing a handgun from his nightstand and kept the line open. Dispatchers heard the confrontation, including Snarski ordering Parsons to leave several times.
