Troy — Police are investigating the death of a man who was found stabbed Monday outside a tire store, officials said. 

Officers found the body at 7 a.m. in a parking lot of a Belle Tire store on Rochester Road at East Long Lake Road. Police said they recovered a knife in the lot. The man was in his late 30s, they said.

A person of interest has been identified and was in custody, police said Monday.

The body was found next to the store's front entrance and covered with snow.

It was turned over to the Oakland County Medical Examiner's Office. An autopsy found he suffered a single stab wound to the chest.

The victim's name was not released because police were working to inform his next of kin. 

A warrant was expected to be submitted to the Oakland County Prosecutor's Office.
