BOTHELL, Wash. (AP) - A judge has set bail at $1 million for a 22-year-old Seattle man arrested in a fatal shooting in Bothell.

The Daily Herald reports (https://goo.gl/z7FxmD ) that according to police, the suspect said he was acting in self-defense while being robbed when he shot and killed a 36-year-old man Friday afternoon.

But investigators say the victim was shot in the back. The victim’s mother called 911 to report the shooting just after 3 p.m. Friday. She said she heard her son yelling “no” and saw him running away from the suspect’s car when a gunshot rang out and he fell to the ground. She said her son was unarmed.

The 22-year-old is being held for investigation of second-degree murder. A witness said he had been selling heroin in the area and that she had used the drug with him just shortly before the shooting.
