3 girls and 2 boys charged with killing musician from Pennsylvania

Police in Nashville say a 24-year-old musician was shot to death outside his house when he refused to turn over the keys to his auto.

According to the New York Post, Roniyah McKnight, 14, Diamond Lewis, 15, and Decorrius Wright, 16 - as well as a 12-year-old girl and 13-year-old boy - were all charged in connection to Yorlets' death.

Prosecutors plan to charge them as adults, the Nashville Tennessean reported.

The singer somehow made it back inside his home after being shot, but he later died; one of his roommates found him there some time later.

CBS Nashville affiliate WTVF reports that Yorlets belonged to a local band called Carverton.

The vehicle in which police say they used to get to the Walmart, a stolen Hyundai Santa Fe was also recovered. Police said they believe Yorlets was shot after he refused to hand over his keys. "We will never forget Kyle, and though he is gone too soon his legacy is here to stay".

Yorlets was rushed to Vanderbilt University Medical Center, where he was pronounced dead. The other two are boys, ages 13 and 16.

They believe that some might have underreported their habits considering that marijuana was illegal for most of the study period. One explanation is that the men in the study who smoked marijuana already had higher sperm counts than those who did not.

The killers had stolen a pickup truck in Oak Grove, Kentucky, drove off and by chance ended up in an alley behind Yorlet's house, cops said.

The minors accosted the man, took his wallet and demanded the keys to his vehicle, which he refused to hand over, prompting the suspects to open fire on him, police stated.

Police discovered a loaded 9mm pistol with the suspects, plus a second loaded and stolen pistol was found inside the store.

The group sat inside a stolen Chevrolet pickup when they spotted musician Kyle Yorlets outside his home in Nashville.

She asked people to "send prayer and good thoughts towards the Yorlets family, his girlfriend, his friends and extended work families".

Yorlets was a Belmont University graduate, originally from Pennsylvania, police said.

All five suspects are being held at a juvenile detention center.

A colleague from the restaurant Pastaria, where Yortlets worked, spoke out saying he was "such a kind and forgiving person".
