Three men were shot, one fatally, inside a two-story rowhouse in the 200 block of N. Madeira St. Monday night, city police reported.

Police said drug-cutting paraphernalia was recovered from the house and that it appeared the triple-shooting involved drugs.

Also recovered in the house was a semi-automatic pistol.

In an alley near the scene of the shooting, police found a .32 caliber revolver.

It was not immediately known to whom the weapons belonged.

Shortly after three suspects entered the rowhouse around 7 p.m., residents reported hearing several gunshots.

One of the victims was able to run to a nearby alley before collapsing.

That man was taken to Johns Hopkins Hospital, where he later died.

His name was withheld pending notification of relatives.

The wounded men, James Cash, 23, and Troy Farmer, 25, both of the 200 block of N. Madeira St., also were taken to Hopkins.

Mr. Cash was treated for gunshot wounds to the wrist and leg and was reported in fair condition.

Mr. Farmer was treated for a bullet wound to the groin and was listed in serious condition.

Lieut. Tony Cannavale of the Eastern District, said furniture inside the house was overturned and that there were bloodied tissues and a bloody pair of jeans in the front room.
