An Indian man hailing from Andhra Pradesh, who used to run a liquor store in the US, was found dead at the shop under suspicious circumstances and police have opened a homicide investigation.

Venkat Reddy-Goli, 47, was found dead by the police inside the Central Liquors store in Colerain Township of Ohio having a population of some 60,000.

The police said Goli, owner of the liquor store, suffered from fatal injuries. A spokesman of Colerain Township Police Department told PTI that no arrest has been made so far.

Police said they have opened a homicide investigation.

"It is under investigation. We can't divulge any other information," he said.

The police arrived at the crime scene in the wee hours of Sunday after his wife called. The wife went to the store after Goli did not return from his business on Saturday night.

When she reached the store, she found her husband lying aside in the store and notified police.
