FRANKLIN — The mother of the man killed in a deadly shooting on Saturday in Franklin is demanding justice.

Police arrested two men in connection to 18-year-old Donovan Isaiah Burdine's death on Tuesday.

Burdine's mother, Tonya Burdine, said Donovan was a son, father and loyal person.

"I hope that everyone involved gets what they deserve and I won't stop until they do. My son wasn't perfect and I know that but he was loyal and loving. He's missed and loved so,so much. I just want people to know they need to know the whole story before they judge. He was a great son, a protector, and a great father. He has many friends that loved him.”
