The NYPD is investigating the deaths of three males killed in a hail of bullets early yesterday in Queens.

Two of the victims were found at about 5 a.m. They were inside a gray Jeep Grand Cherokee that was double-parked on 144th Avenue in Springfield Gardens.

A third victim was found dead in the street near the Jeep's rear passenger door, said Brendan Ryan, a spokesman for the New York Police Department.

All of the victims suffered multiple gunshot wounds and appear to have been shot by an automatic weapon, Ryan said.

Police, who went to the scene in response to 911 calls about gunshots, have not released the names of the victims.

No arrests have been made.
