An ex-con opened fire on a train in New Jersey and wounded two passengers - and then himself - after becoming enraged when a stranger objected to him falling asleep on her shoulder, police said today.

Tari Turpin, 34, pulled out a 9mm Glock semi-automatic pistol and started shooting aboard a PATH Train in Jersey City, New Jersey, on Sunday morning. 

He shot one woman in the ankle and hit another in the hand. Then, he accidentally shot himself in the leg, according to reports. None of the injuries were life-threatening.

Turpin was riding the train with his girlfriend and their two children at the time. The girlfriend was also arrested and the children were taken into custody, according to police.

WABC-TV spoke to Diamond Drummer, who said Turpin was falling sleep on her on her ride home from New York City about 5.10am.

When she asked the man not so lean on her, he became furious and pulled out his pistol and racked the slide, Ms Drummer said. 

Her brother, who was riding in the train car with her, intervened and convinced Turpin to put the gun away.

Ms Drummer said she then remarked, 'Who pulls out a gun for something like this?'

That's when Turpin started firing, Ms Drummer told the TV station.

He fired several shots, striking Ms Drummer in the ankle. He hit another passenger, Aubree Marshall, in the hand.

The gunfire ended when Turpin wounded himself in the leg.

All three were taken to the Jersey City Medical Center for treatment.

@ruff, plz tell me more, do you have a website? I'd like to present some of those ideas in some of these gang banging area. I have been quarreling about the wellfare system but realize local legislators just talk but no action. They are trying to get rid of multiple dwellings in Middletown NY to help combat crime. It has been proven that those conditions increase crime rates.
