INDIANAPOLIS (WISH) — One person is dead and four others are injured after a mass shooting outside a club on the south side of Indianapolis early Sunday morning. 

The Indianapolis Metropolitan Police Department says officers were called to the parking lot outside of GZ Club on the 5900 block of Madison Avenue at around 1:20 a.m. Eastern daylight saving time Sunday on a report of a person shot. That was before the time when people pushed back their clocks an hour for daylight saving time.

When officers arrived, they found five people with gunshot wounds.
