Nashville Singer Gunned Down by Group of Juveniles Ages 12-16, Police Say

Kyle Yorlets was chasing the dream as the singer for a Nashville-based band who also worked as a bartender to help pay the bills until he was gunned down outside of his home Thursday night, allegedly by a pack of juveniles.

“We are heartbroken,” Yorlets’s bandmates in the group Carverton said a statement Friday morning. “Our condolences for his family and loved ones and all the lives that he touched. We will never forget Kyle, and though he is gone too soon his legacy is here to stay.”

As his friends mourned, the justice system responded. Prosecutors said they want the five juveniles involved to be tried as adults, something very rare in Tennessee, the Tennessean reported.

“The investigation shows that the five were in a stolen Chevrolet Colorado pickup truck in the alley that runs behind Yorlets’ home when they spotted him outside. The juveniles interacted with Yorlets, took his wallet, and ultimately demanded that he surrender the keys to his vehicle. It is believed that he was fatally shot after he refused,” a police statement said.

The group accused of being responsible for his death is made up of three girls, aged 12, 14 and 15, and two boys, aged 13 and 16.\

Although a lawyer for the 12-year-old girl wanted her to be tried as a child, Assistant District Attorney Stacy Miller disagreed during a juvenile court hearing.

“She didn’t run from there, and she didn’t call the police,” Miller said. “She’s as guilty as they are.”

The group was arrested Friday, at which time police took possession of two guns, police spokesman Don Aaron said.

Aaron said the police hunt for the juveniles began as a search for the 12-year-old girl, who had run away from home, The Washington Post reported.

Aaron said that as they were searching for the girl, police found Snapchat posts showing her “with other young people with guns.”

Police then took testimony from witnesses near where Yorlets were shot and learned that the shooting and missing person cases had intersected.

Police said that after Yorlets was shot, he was able to return inside to the house where he was living. He was found an hour later by a housemate. At that point, he was taken to a hospital where he was pronounced dead.

A GoFundMe page has been established to assist the Yorlets family with funeral expenses. By early Sunday afternoon, it had raised over $37,000.

Carverton, the band with which Yorlets sang, had its debut album scheduled for release next month.

    It’s black kids that did this. Nobody’s saying anything. If it were white kids killing a black man we’d never hear the end of it. They’d be protesting in the streets. Way to go media. You are responsible for this along with the black radical groups who preach racism to our country.

      Exactly….they should be charged as adults, and do serious time!

      Charged as Adults as First degree Felonious Assualt and Murder in the First Degree and due to their viciousness the Death Penalty should not be taken off the Book for their evil deeds.

      You’re right – if it were reversed the headline would have been “White Youths Murder Black Singer”

    Sick of blacks getting away with murder, theft, anything crooked they are usually the culprits. If it were the White people we’d all be in prison! So many scumbags in this world.
    Time to send them down the gutter. I’m sure monkey puke face Al Sharpton will get involved in their defense.

    How is it possible for these “kids” to be so lawless at so young an age? And so lacking in humanity as to kill another human being just for their possessions? It boggles the mind–mine, at least. I have to wonder what kind of homes are we dealing with here. What kind of parents. And what an absolute tragedy for the victim and his family and friends. I hope–regardless of their ages–that justice is served.

      I’m sure if we look closer at the homes they grew up in, we will find the answer to your question. Many Blacks believe that they are entitled to whatever they want because their ancestors were once slaves. I’m sure this is what they’ve been taught at home as well as in school. The left also preaches this, as they constantly remind the Black population that they have a right to compensation because of their heritage. Well, I don’t buy all this BS. Everyone at one time or another in history had been enslaved but went on with their lives after it ended. only the Black people can’t seem to move on with their lives.

        U R right! Correct me if my history is fuzzy. I believe the ancient Egyptians a black race enslaved whites 4 hundreds if not thousands of years. If reparations r due then let them bring those who sold them in2 slavery in the 1st place 2 court.
        IE: other black tribes & muslim Arab slave traders. GOOD LUCK WITH THAT EFFORT! Most Caucasians ,Asians, Hispanics
        were not in this country @ time of slavery. Also those free blacks who owned slaves need 2 b exposed

      No lawful parental guidance, most likely broken welfare plantation environment . Probably taught 2 hate “whitey” by BLM type groups. Raised in “CALL OF THE WILD” “SURVIVAL OF THE MOST LAWLES” teachings or just by watching others take what they want. With BLM type attitudes , they believe they r entitled 2 do as they plz..

    Once again I can only quote Chris Rock. He said, when talking about events like this and the people involved in them, and I quote “it’s the niggers’.

    A man’s life was taken from him after he suffered terrible pain for an hour. He didn’t deserve to die, was not in a gang, wasn’t dealing drugs – no, he was a good guy. Those five need to stay in prison for thirty years. You want to know why there are more blacks in prison by percentage, it’s real simple, they commit 60% of the violent crime.

    People someone is dead. it does not matter black or white at this junction. White people feel entitled as well, it’s the entire youth that is getting raised, give me give me give me. Yes they may have come from bad homes but who didn’t. The made a conscience choice pay the price.

    Well…Where is the chorus of the mouthy blacks that usually chime in when a black claims he was assaulted by MAGA commenting people?…HOW about it STEVE HARVEY ?…OBOZO?…AL SHARPTON?…JESSE JACKSON?….Where are the screams for a hate crime charge?….I knew after the headline/first paragraph that the criminals were black ….NOW let’s put the blame where it belongs…Obozo for his 8 years of pampering the blacks/ claiming every crime committed by blacks was the result of slavery 170 years ago or how they never get the opportunity to advance…the media for their lying/biased reporting (just like this article…when there is NO MENTION of race it will be blacks …but if the perp is white it will listed in the title of the article or at least the first paragraph along with a call for “hate crime prosecution”)….and last but no least the simple minded whites that believe all their bullsh%t

    I think we as a society should think twice about trying kids as adults. While we grieve for the singer and his family, it is important to remember the big picture. One, at least, is only 12. How many stupid things did you do as a child? I did plenty but now think as an adult. That is what the laws for child offenders were designed for.

      When ‘kids’ act like this, whether they be black, white or purple, is long gone i am truly afraid that their chance at humanity is beyond redemption. They want to play adult games let them be punished as adults.

      How many stupid things did I do as as child? Plenty but the only person I harmed was myself.
