A man who led police on a 30-minute chase early Friday morning on the northeast side of Indianapolis fatally shot himself after he crashed, authorities say. Mwaka Hare, 34, of Indianapolis was being questioned by police just after midnight at a gas station at 56th Street and Caito Drive after they received a call from a woman who said he was chasing her. While they were questioning him, he got back in his vehicle and fled. He led police on a slow-speed chase on interstates 465 and 70 before crashing in the 9700 block of Pendleton Pike in Lawrence. Police said he shot himself in the head with a handgun before they arrived at the car.
