A man collapsed and died after he stumbled into a Bronx deli when he was shot following a dispute with another man who tried to run the victim over but failed, leaving the vehicle at the scene, police say.

The duo got into a screaming match somewhere near the Gun Hill Classic Gourmet Deli in Pelham Gardens around 10:30 p.m. Monday when the suspect tried to slam a vehicle into the victim, according to the NYPD. When the suspect failed, he fled the area, leaving the car behind.

About an hour later, the suspect came back and shot the man in the chest, authorities say. The 46-year-old victim, whose name hasn't been released, was taken to an area hospital, where he was pronounced dead.

Video from the scene shows investigators combing for clues inside the deli as yellow police tape blocks off a car, presumably the one the suspect left behind.

No arrests have been made and the investigation is ongoing.
