TOONE, Tenn. (AP) - Authorities are investigating the killings of a man and his 13-year-old son in rural West Tennessee.

Tennessee Bureau of Investigation spokesman Josh DeVine said 38-year-old Joe Robertson and his son Javarrie Robertson were shot at about 7:30 a.m. on Friday. Their bodies were found in a home in the small Hardeman County town of Toone, located about 65 miles east of Memphis.

DeVine says two other children, a 5-year-old girl and a newborn girl, were in the home at the time of the slayings, but they were not hurt. They are being cared for by family members.

No arrests have been made and no motive has been released. Authorities are urging anyone with information about the killings to call 1-800-TBI-FIND.
