NJ man gunned down in father's liquor store

Washington, Feb 16 (IANS) An Indian-American succumbed to bullet wounds after he was gunned down in his family-owned liquor shop in New Jersey, according to a media report.

Amit Patel, 28, was shot and killed inside Roseway Liquors in Irvington Sunday afternoon, Eyewitness News reported Sunday, adding that authorities were trying to identify the killer.
