Cass County, Texas authorities continue their investigation into the tragic shooting death of a man and his 12-year old adopted son.

The bodies were found Friday night on County Road 2747 between Hughes Springs and Marietta.

Sheriff officials say the victims, Damon Robison, 32, and his 12-year old adopted son were found dead of gunshot wounds near the kitchen.

Robison's other 13-year old adopted son called 911, asking for officers.

He's currently being held for questioning, but officials say they still don't know how it happened.

The 13-year old and 12-year old are biological brothers. Their mother was at work during the time of the shooting.

Neighbors say they were saddened by the news.

"They liked to play like normal kids. They knew alot about guns. Their dad raised them up hunting," said Sarah Reynolds, neighbor and 7th grade classmate.

The bodies were sent to Dallas for an autopsy.

Visitation for Damon Robison and the 12-year old boy will be Wednesday from 6:00 p.m. to 8:00 p.m. at the Harrison Funeral Home in Naples, Texas.

Cass County Sheriff's Office and the Texas Rangers are investigating.
