Northern Indiana worker slain in workplace attack identified

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, 37-year-old Tommy Love of South Bend, were co-workers.

WNDU reports Love was arrested and booked into the St. Joseph County Jail on preliminary suspicion of Voluntary Manslaughter in connection with the homicide investigation into the death of Aaron Woods.
