It was a shocking and heartbreaking discovery for a woman in Delaware. According to police, 46-year-old Kanubhai Pate was walking to work at the Dunkin Donuts around 4 a.m. when someone robbed and shot him.

Police tell Action News Patel's wife, who also works at the store, found her deceased husband on her way to work.

Kanu Patel's brother-in-law, Raju, could not contain his emotions as he described the father of two.

He says Kanu was a friendly, hardworking man who woke up in the wee hours to open the Dunkin Donuts store and provide for his family.

The Dunkin Donuts store never opened Saturday.

Police hope surveillance video will create a break in the case.

They say there are many videos that they are gathering and looking at.

Anyone who may have been in the area around 4:00 a.m. or has information related to the case is urged to call Delaware State Police.
