QUESTION: Was there a homicide shooting on Dec. 30, 2006 on Hillsdale and Walerga that killed Anthony Fuller?
Submitted by: Kitten, Sacramento
ANSWER: Anthony Fuller, 26, of Sacramento was fatally shot during a fight that began inside a Foothill Farms liquor store on Dec. 30, 2006.
According to stories in The Bee, Fuller may have been trying to avoid a confrontation when he ducked into Ernie's Liquor and Deli on Hillsdale Boulevard about 6:30 p.m. Sheriff's officials said Fuller, dressed in red, was walking with his girlfriend. He went into the store when he saw a group of men dressed in blue and may have suspected they were gang members.
A few minutes later, a fistfight broke out between Fuller and another man inside the store and continued in a parking lot where Fuller was shot several times. He was taken to a local hospital where he died about two hours later.
Authorities at the time were unsure whether the two men knew each other.
