According to police, when Michael Slonaker heard an unexpected,
midnight-hour knock at his door, he cautiously answered it armed
with a handgun. Unbeknownst to him, two juveniles were standing
behind his front door, one clutching a baseball bat and the other
holding a shotgun. As Slonaker opened the door, the juvenile holding
the shotgun began to raise it. Slonaker fired two shots, hitting
both assailants. The shotgun-toting youth, who had been on
probation, was killed. His accomplice was arrested when he sought
treatment at the hospital for a gunshot wound.
