HAMPTON -- Police say two men are under arrest in Massachusetts, charged with murder in Hampton.

According to police, Adam Abdullah Mohammad Brewer and Evan Stephens tried to hold up three men about 2:30 Friday afternoon as they arrived at a home near Phoebus High School.

One of the men, 20-year-old Johnny Lee Purdie, tried to run away from the robbery. Police say Brewer shot and killed Purdie in front of his home in the 100 block of Ireland Street, then fled the scene.

The other victims, a 19- and 20-year-old man from Hampton, were not harmed.

Brewer, 21, and Stephens, 19, were arrested in Springfield and face extradition.

They face several charges, including murder and attempted robbery.
