Toone, TN (WMC) -

Two men and a woman were arrested and charged with murdering a 13-year-old and his father in Toone, Tennessee, according to Tennessee Bureau of Investigation.

TBI said Damein K. Hamer was arrested in Benton County, Mississippi, Jeremy Hamer was arrested in Bolivar, Tennessee, and Andrian Bullock was charged while she was in custody at Hardeman County Jail. 

The men are cousins and grew up in Benton County, Mississippi, which is about a 40 minute drive from Toone. Bullock's relationship to the men has not been released at this time.

Investigators said Damein, Jeremy, and Bullock shot and killed Javarrie "JoJo" Robertson, and his father, Joe Dandrea "Duke" Robertson, on Friday morning in Hardeman County.

The victims were at their home with two other young children. Those children were not injured.

You can imagine the relief felt by the town of Toone when news of the three arrests circulated. All three suspects are charged with first degree murder.

People who know the victims said they do not know the suspects. But, for those in the small community, they are hoping investigators are able to get to the bottom of what happened.

"Hope that these are the right guys that they have got, and that they will continue to get to the end of who murdered him," friend Ivory Beard said.

The murders left the community shaken and scared.

"I was scared they were going to come back and kill us," Jerleen Murphy said. 

Investigators have not released a motive for the murders.

Damien Hamer will soon be extradited from Benton County to Hardeman County to face criminal charges.
