Three people were fatally shot inside a Jersey City home, in an apparent drug robbery.

The victims were shot in a house on Fulton Avenue just after 10 p.m. Monday.

Two men and a woman are believed to have been killed. They were pronounced dead at the scene.

One of the victims is believed to have been involved in drug activity. Investigators said the shooting appears to be the result of a drug robbery. Drugs and guns were recovered at the scene.

Police quickly surrounded a U-Haul truck parked on nearby Bayside Place that they said was connected to the shooting. Two men were reported to have fled that vehicle.
