Metro police have arrested two boys, ages 13 and 16, and three girls, ages 12, 14 and 15 with criminal homicide in connection with Yorlets' death. Three of the five are girls, and prosecutors are expected to try them all as adults, reports the Tennessean.

Yorlets, who was the lead singer in a local rock group callled Carverton, made it back inside his house but died later at the hospital, say police in a statement.

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.

Yorlets was shot and killed outside of his Tennessee home on on Friday.

"We will never forget Kyle, and though he is gone too soon, his legacy is here to stay", they said.

He still had a faint pulse, according to the police spokesperson, and was transported to Vanderbilt University Medical Center. Police say that during their interaction with the victim, they took his wallet and demanded his vehicle keys.

Cops had been out searching for the 12-year-old, who had run away from home, since Thursday morning, the newspaper said.

Later that day, officers recovered the stolen Chevy Colorado, which had been abandoned in the 1600 block of Timberland Drive.

Another loaded and stolen gun that the juveniles allegedly hid in one of the aisles inside the department store was found.
