An apparently jealous Bronx man has been charged with allegedly executing his ex-girlfriend’s beau in a deadly Brooklyn shooting early Saturday morning, police sources reported.

Adam Thomas, 31, was booked on a murder charge Saturday for gunning down Justin Moncada, 30, also of the Bronx.

Authorities said the homicide happened at about 12:16 a.m. on Dec. 18 inside a home on 83rd Street off 14th Avenue in Dyker Heights.

Officers from the 62nd Precinct, in responding to a 911 call regarding a man shot, found Moncada with bullet wounds to his head. Responding EMS units pronounced him dead at the scene.

Police sources described the shooting as a domestic violence incident. Based on a preliminary investigation, police determined that the Thomas came to the home and shot the Moncada, who was seeing his former girlfriend. 

Officers took Thomas into custody at the location for further questioning.

A firearm allegedly used in the homicide was also recovered from the location, law enforcement sources noted.
