Three people were shot and wounded during a confrontation aboard a moving PATH train that spilled out onto the platform at a northern New Jersey train station.

Authorities say a man apparently bumped into a woman around 5:30 a.m. Sunday and was confronted by her brother. The man then shot the woman in the ankle and the brother in the hand, and the brother then shot the man in the leg.

The three New Jersey residents were being treated for injuries that are not considered life-threatening. One of them, 34-year-old Tari Turpin of East Orange, was charged with two counts of aggravated assault and weapons offenses.

The shootings at the Pavonia PATH station in Jersey City forced a temporary suspension of PATH service between Hoboken and Journal Square.
