Florida detectives said Saturday they were investigating the deaths of three close friends who drove to a lake at night to go catfishing and wound up beaten and shot.

It happened Friday night around 10 p.m. on Lake Streety in Frostproof.

“This is a horrific scene,” Polk County Sheriff Grady Judd told reporters from the scene Saturday morning. “I’ve been to a lot of murder scenes and this ranked among the worst I’ve been to.”

Judd identified the victims as Damion Tillman, 23; Keven Springfield, 30, and Brandon Rollins, 27, all of Frostproof, and said they had been “massacred.”

He said the fishing spot was “as far out in the woods as you can get.”

The victims were attacked as they arrived at the scene within minutes of each other in two pickups, authorities said.

Judd said detectives were summoned to the scene by the father of Rollins, who said he was asleep when his son called and cried for help.
