RALEIGH, N.C. — Wake County authorities are investigating the death of a man found inside the In & Out Food Mart Friday.

Wake County Sheriff Donnie Harrison said when some customers went to the Creech Road store early Friday morning they found the door was open, apparently with no one there. When they returned later, they went into the store and found 43-year old Osama Hussein dead inside.

The customers contacted authorities, who are investigating. Hussein's cause of death has not yet been determined, but Wake County authorities are treating the case as a homicide.
