5 juveniles arrested for murder of man in West Nashville


A 24-year-old man was shot and killed during an attempted robbery outside his West Nashville home Thursday. 

Police responded to the call just before 3 p.m. in the 3200 block of Torbett street.

Kyle Yorlets was shot outside his home and was able to make it back inside where one of his housemates found him, according to Metro police. 

Yorlets was rushed to Vanderbilt University Medical Center, where he was pronounced dead. He was from Pennsylvania and went to Belmont University. He was also in a local band and worked at a restaurant. 

Investigators say a red Chevrolet Colorado pickup truck was stolen from Oak Grove, Kentucky and used as the getaway car. It was later recovered in the 1600 block of Timberland Drive in Antioch. 

Authorities said witnesses reported three juveniles got out of the truck. Two of them fled in a silver or light blue crossover type car and the third was last seen on foot walking on Mossdale Drive towards Bell Road. 

Metro police later said five juveniles will be charged in Yorlet’s murder after they were taken into custody at the Walmart on Charlotte Pike. They have been booked into juvenile detention. 

The suspects include three girls, ages 15, 14 and 12, and two boys, ages 16 and 13. 

A gun was recovered as was a stolen car in the Walmart parking lot, according to Metro police.
