HENRICO COUNTY, Va. -- (WTVR) -- Grief counselors were on hand Monday at Highland Springs High School after the weekend shooting death of Jaishaun Williams.

Williams, 15, attended the Henrico County high school.

He and his mother, Renita Wells, were killed inside a Fayette Circle home early Saturday morning.

Renita Wells' parents believe Jaishaun was killed trying to protect his mother from his father, her husband.

"I just told her the other day to get a restraining order on him because she was afraid," Renita's mother Rachelle Wells said.

Derrell Williams, Jaishaun's father and Renita's husband, was later arrested on unrelated charges.

Derrell Williams, 33, is expected to be arraigned in New Kent County court on several charges including felony eluding police, possession of drugs, and gun charges. While he is not charged with the homicides, police confirmed they were not looking for any suspects at this time.

Williams was arrested on Interstate 64 less than an hour after Saturday's fatal shooting.
