Authorities have identified a man fatally shot at his Indianapolis home Wednesday after he led police on a chase. Duane Slentz, 49, fled Brookside Park in a black Dodge after he was questioned by a park ranger who said he smelled like alcohol. He fled to his home in the 3800 block of South Franklin Road, where he crashed into another car before locking himself in the house. He was shot through the house by an officer who heard him cock his gun. Slentz was on probation for drunken driving.
