But Fuller and others frequently fired guns in the backyard. Patterson said Fuller had high-powered rifles as well as handguns. He said they shot at targets such as milk jugs and cans and that several trees in the yard were damaged from the shooting. Sometimes Fuller drank alcohol while shooting, and sometimes the children or friends were there while the shooting took place, Patterson said. An Iredell County man shot and killed two young boys believed to be his children early Sunday and then shot himself but survived, Iredell County Sheriff Darren Campbell said. Sheriff’s Office received a call at 3:37 a.m. Sunday reporting a domestic incident at a home in the 100 block of Trent Road in Statesville, Campbell said in a news release Sunday. The caller said a man at the home was firing a gun and was intoxicated, Campbell said. Deputies found a man with a gunshot wound outside the front door of the home, Campbell said. Inside the home, investigators found the bodies of two boys, ages 3 and 4. The children were brothers and were living in the house with their biological mother and father, Campbell said. The man found outside the house was taken to Carolinas Medical Center and was reported to be in critical condition, Campbell said. Deputies had not released the man’s name or the identities of the two children but said he was likely the children’s father. A neighbor identified the man living next door as Shawn Fuller and said Fuller had a wife and two children, but he did not give their names. Fuller’s Facebook page says he’s from Cooperstown, N.Y. Ronnie Patterson, Fuller’s next door neighbor, said the family had moved in several months ago, around Christmas. Patterson had not known Fuller and his wife to argue. Patterson’s grandson, who is 7, sometimes played with Fuller’s two boys, he said. “They were good kids,” Patterson said. But Fuller and others frequently fired guns in the backyard. Patterson said Fuller had high-powered rifles as well as handguns. He said they shot at targets such as milk jugs and cans and that several trees in the yard were damaged from the shooting. Sometimes Fuller drank alcohol while shooting, and sometimes the children or friends were there while the shooting took place, Patterson said. Patterson said the shooting next door was so common and disturbing that his girlfriend had moved out of the house. A neighbor who has lived across the street since 1976 also complained about the shooting. She declined to give her name. “There were a lot of cars in and out all the time,” the woman said. “You would think at times there was a firing range down there.” On the occasions when they had talked, Fuller often seemed paranoid and behaved as if he was “scared of everything,” Patterson said. Fuller also worried that someone was trying to break into his home, Patterson said. On Saturday, Patterson drove into his driveway around 12:30 p.m., and Fuller was in the backyard, shooting. He said the shooting continued all day Saturday and into the night. At one point, Fuller invited Patterson’s adult son over to have a drink by the campfire in the backyard as the shooting continued. Patterson said his son was in his car and was leaving home when Fuller knocked on his car window to invite him over. Patterson said his son declined Fuller’s invitation. On at least one occasion, Fuller told Patterson that he thought someone was trying to break into his home. Once, he told Patterson that he saw someone run into the woods and pointed to an area behind the mobile home where he lived with his family. Fuller asked Patterson if he could see the person in the woods. Patterson said he did not see anything or anyone suspicious as they stood outside talking. Patterson said he was surprised that Fuller was so uneasy and concerned about intruders. Until Fuller moved in, it was a quiet neighborhood where you didn’t have to worry about your belongings or your safety, Patterson said.
