Fuller and a house guest went outside to a car when they were
confronted by the gunman at about 2:30 a.m. The man chased Fuller
back into the house and then fled after about 20 shots were
exchanged, police said. No one was injured.
Fuller, whose younger brother, Fred Bates, was shot to death at
age 18 in 1992, offered a $10,000 reward for information leading to
"I've already lost one son," said Fuller's mother, Alice
Bates. "I don't want to lose another one."
Fuller said the gunman had at least one accomplice inside a
waiting getaway car. He said he returned fire with his own
.38-caliber revolver, which was inside the home.
