CAMDEN, N.J. (AP) - Twin brothers have been found shot to death inside a vehicle in New Jersey’s poorest city.

Police found 26-year-old Markice and Maurice Harper dead in Camden just after 7:30 a.m. Friday.

The Camden County prosecutor’s office says the brothers were from the Fairview section of Camden.

The vehicle has been identified as a silver 2011 Jeep SUV.

Authorities believe the brothers were shot hours before a passing motorist called 911.

No arrests have been made.

Crime rates in the city of 77,000 across the river from Philadelphia are among the highest in the country.
