Police said in the course of the investigation, they learned that the underage suspects had traveled to the West Nashville Walmart on Charlotte Pike, where all five baby-faced suspected killers were apprehended.

While names of the two youngest suspects, including a 12-year-old girl and a 13-year-old boy, were not released due to their age.

Nashville police arrested five children on Friday, all between the ages of 12 and 16, in connection to the killing of a 24-year-old singer in a pop rock band.

The teens are accused of shooting 24-year-old Kyle Yorlets outside of his home in the 3200 block of Torbett Street on Thursday afternoon.

According to cops, the kids apparently never got Yorlets' auto, but they did managed to steal his wallet.

Police said it's believed that he was shot after he refused.

Witnesses near the scene of the arrest told police they saw three juveniles get out of the pickup truck.

The stolen truck was found later Thursday, according to police. He was taken to Vanderbilt University Medical Center where he was pronounced dead.

Yorlets, a Pennsylvania native, attended Belmont University and was a member of a local band named Carverton. Another stolen vehicle allegedly used by the children, a Hyundai Santa Fe, was also recovered. It was later recovered in the 1600 block of Timberland Drive in Antioch.

A loaded 9-millimeter pistol was recovered from the suspects, as well as a second loaded pistol which was recovered from inside the store.

"On February 7, 2019 we lost our brother, best friend, and bandmate Kyle Yorlets".

"Our condolences for his family and loved ones and all the lives that he touched".

Police say the juveniles approached victim Kyle Yorlets outside his house and stole his wallet, then shot him when he wouldn't give up the keys to his vehicle. "We will never forget Kyle, and though he is gone too soon his legacy is here to stay", the band said.

Carverton said in a statement that they were shocked and heartbroken by the news.
