South Bend man slain by co-worker in attack at Mishawaka plant

Indiana

MISHAWAKA, Ind. (AP) – Authorities say a northern Indiana worker has died in a workplace attack by a co-worker.

St. Joseph County Metro Homicide Commander Tim Corbett says one man died in the incident Tuesday at Patrick Metals in Mishawaka. The Homicide Unit identified him as 37-year-old Aaron Woods Jr. of South Bend.

Corbett declined to say how the man died, but local news media say the attack was initially reported as a stabbing.

Corbett says Woods and the suspect were co-workers.

The suspect wasn’t immediately identified and remained at large Tuesday evening. Several schools near the plant were placed on external lockdown.

The company’s website says it provides aluminum extrusion for a variety of industries.
