A 25-year-old man was fatally shot in front of his son inside a Bronx subway station Friday night—the third domestic-related homicide in the borough in as many days, authorities said.    

Rafael Hollis, 29, allegedly killed James Cubille, 25, with a bullet to the chest following an argument between Cubille and his ex-wife, who was at the East 167th St./Grand Concourse station with her new beau, Hollis, as well as a son she shares with Cubille, according to the NYPD.

Hollis was still on the run Saturday. Anyone with information is asked to call 800-577-TIPS.

Earlier in the week, domestic violence claimed two other lives across the borough.

A teenage girl was stabbed to death by her boyfriend Wednesday inside a Bronx homeless shelter, and Thursday saw a man allegedly run over his ex-wife with a car before slashing her to death with a machete, authorities said.
