The robbers, numbering about six, reportedly attacked a gold-buying shop in the area and fired indiscriminately.
According to witnesses, the victims included the gold dealer, his friend and a passerby.
The bodies have been deposited at the morgue for preservation.
The police say a special team comprising investigation, intelligence and operational officers have been deployed to beef up security in the town and surrounding communities.
