Authorities at first said the 45-year-old male victim was either shot or stabbed during a dispute on the Metropolitan Transportation Authority train as it was traveling in the Bronx area of the city toward the 182-183rd Street station near Fordham, sometime after 5 a.m. local time.

Later it was determined that the victim has suffered a gunshot wound.

No arrests have been made, but police have released surveillance photos of three suspects -- all wearing black -- wanted for questioning.

The victim -- who had puncture wound on his chest -- has not yet been identified. Emergency crews took him to St. Barnabas Hospital, where he died.

"This disgusting violence will not be tolerated in NYC. They will be located and we will bring them to justice for the victim and his family," NYPD Deputy Commissioner Kaz Daughtry said on social media.
