Authorities later arrested the youths at a Nashville store and recovered two stolen, loaded pistols.

Investigators found Snapchat photos of the girl in a auto with other young people and guns, Aaron said, according to the Tennessean. Police have also charged a 12-year-old girl and a 13-year-old boy. The attorney for the youngest in the group - a 12-year-old girl - said her client has cooperated and did not belong in an adult court, the Tennessean reported.

Per local law, the three suspects over the age of 13 have been publicly identified. They have been booked into juvenile detention.

Police responded to the call just before 3 p.m.in the 3200 block of Torbett street. They allegedly took his wallet and demanded the keys to his vehicle.


The five kids allegedly approached Yorlets outside his home, drew their guns, and demanded his wallet and auto keys.

On Friday, Yorlets' bandmates released a statement addressing his death.

The mortally wounded victim managed to make it inside his home, where he was found by one of his roommates at 3pm.

The pickup truck was found abandoned on Timberland Drive, which is south of the airport. It was stolen Wednesday in Oak Grove, Kentucky.


Yorlets, originally from Pennsylvania, was a member of a local Tennesee band, Carverton.

Carverton said in a statement that they were shocked and heartbroken by the news. In Nashville, he worked at the Mike and Honey and Pastaria restaurants. They say they're saddened by his loss and are doing everything they can to support his friends and family at this time.

Nashville police have arrested the five kids they say shot and killed a 24-year-old musician Thursday afternoon.

Officials with Metro police said the five suspects were in a stolen Chevrolet Colorado pickup truck in the alley that runs behind Yorlets' home when they saw him outside. He was rushed to Vanderbilt University Medical Center.


Officials say they believe Yorlets resisted and was shot.
