INDIANAPOLIS (WISH) — A man was found dead after a report of shots fired Wednesday night at a manufacturing plant on the city’s east side.

Indianapolis Metropolitan Police Department and medics were called just before 7 p.m. Wednesday to 6790 E. 32nd St., the address for PSC Industries. PSC stands for Packaging Service Corporation, according to the company’s website. The plant is located southwest of the intersection of East 34th Street and Shadeland Avenue.
