Kyle Yorlets Murder: Full Story & List Of Suspects

Kyle Yorlets, a 24-year-old Nashville-based musician, was shot and killed outside of his home on Thursday, February 7, by five minors who were attempting to rob him.


What Happened?

Police say that the suspects, who were driving a stolen Chevrolet Colorado, took Yorlets’ wallet and attempted to take his car keys. When Yorlets refused the teens’ command, they shot him.

Following the shooting, Yorlets was taken to Vanderbilt University Medical Center, where he later succumbed to his injuries.

In the days after the shooting, five suspects have been arrested and charged: 14-year-old Roniyah McKnight, 15-year-old Diamond Lewis, and 16-year-old Decorrius Wright. Two others — aged 12 and 13 — were arrested and charged, although they have yet to be identified.

According to The Tennessean, Nashville prosecutors are pushing to charges all five suspects as adults, as police spokesman Don Arron said that “none of the five individuals are a stranger to the system or this police department.”

While the prosecution is pushing to charge the 12-year-old girl as an adult, the girl’s attorney argues that she should not be tried in adult court as she cooperated with authorities following her arrest.


Statement for Kyle Yorlets’ Band

In a statement, Yorlets’ band Carverton said that they are “heartbroken” and in a “state of shock.”

“We are heartbroken,” Carverton’s statement said. “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. We thank you for your support and will talk to you soon.”

A GoFundMe page created for Yorlets’ family has raised over $40,000 at the time of this writing.
