A 23-year-old man was found shot to death in the Bronx on Sunday night after what appears to have been a dispute, police said.

Joseph Belton was found with multiple gunshot wounds to the torso on Creston Avenue in Fordham Heights just after 6 p.m. Hewas rushed to St. Barnabus Hospital, where he was pronounced dead.

Belton lived less than a mile from where he was found shot, on Burnside Avenue in Morris Heights.

Cops said no arrests have been made and the investigation is ongoing. Police believe the shooting was provoked by a dispute.

On Monday, investigators were looking for a black man suspected in the shooting who was caught on video by a surveillance camera, police said.
