Family and loved ones are seeking justice in the killings of three best friends who were beaten and shot while they were out fishing in Florida Friday night.

The men have been identified by the Polk County Sheriff's Office as 23-year-old Damion Tillman, 30-year-old Keven Springfield and 27-year-old Brandon Rollins, all from Frostproof, Florida, about 70 miles south of Orlando.

"I know it can't bring my son back," Dottie Payton, Rollins' mother, told WFLA-TV. "But I just want to see something done. This was horrible."

Rollins' father received a distress call from his son Friday night before he died. Knowing where he and his friends were, Cyril Rollins rushed to their regular fishing spot.

"When I got there, I was looking for my son," he told the TV station. "It was a mess. I found my son, I was holding him. He was telling me what happened, but I was too shocked."

Polk County Sheriff Grady Judd said during a news conference Saturday that they're withholding information about what Brandon Rollins told his father in his final moments.
