Authorities say a man charged in a shooting at an Ohio veterans hospital intended to intimidate former co-workers he believed were having inappropriate relationships with his wife and daughter.

Federal authorities said in a statement that 59-year-old Neil Moore, of Trotwood, was charged Tuesday in Dayton with assault with a dangerous weapon and use of a deadly weapon during the commission of a violent crime.

Court documents say Moore entered a room where several people were playing cards and pointed a gun at them saying not to "mess" with his family.

Authorities say he fired three shots when a former co-worker lunged at him, wounding another one in the ankle.

It wasn't immediately known whether Moore has an attorney.
