The brothers' family members are reeling from all of this, trying to grasp what's happened and why someone would shoot these young men inside their own home, teens that police say are innocent victims.
At this point, police do not have any suspects or a motive in the killings. They are asking the family and community for help with information in the case.
The Berry brothers were set to begin their senior year at Midfield High School in the fall.
It was around 11:30 p.m. Friday night when the shooting happened at their home on Attalla Street.
Authorities say three men showed up, forced their way into the house, ransacked it and then shot the boys.
While all this was going on, the twins' mother arrived home and the suspects reportedly shot her too.
Family members say Latasha Berry was hit in her spine and that she is now paralyzed from the waist down.
Authorities do not believe this was a random shooting.
The twins' aunt and uncle said they don't know who did this to these two young men or why.
"Far as stealing, doing bad stuff, they didn't do nothing like that. I'd like to go on record saying they weren't bad kids. I don't think they did anything that could have brought these actions on them," the twins uncle, Lester Milligan, said.
"It's really got everybody terrified because when you're in traffic you don't know if this is the guy who did it, what's the motive?" he said.
The family stressed that they do not believe in seeking personal revenge for what's happened. They say they're trusting authorities to handle the case.
The family is trying to collect a reward, believing it will help in the search for the suspects.
The twins' service will be Saturday, July 6 at 12 p.m. at Friendship Baptist Church in Brighton.
The family has set up a fund at Wells Fargo in the teens' memory, the Berry Twins Foundation. Part of the funds will go to help with funeral costs.
