Four teenagers including Decorrius Wright left and Morris Marsh escaped a Nashville juvenile detention center late Saturday

The teens are 15, 16, and 17, and were last seen Saturday night, according to a tweet from the Metro Nashville Police Department.

Police say they are looking for four teenagers, two of them murder suspects, who escaped a Tennessee detention center.

Wright is among five juveniles aged 12 to 16 accused of fatally shooting Yorlets while trying to rob him near his Nashville home in February.

Authorities are still searching for the four, who are considered unsafe due to their arrest histories. Two of the others have histories of armed robbery arrests; police said all four are considered unsafe, according to News 4.

Police said the group of teens was on work detail when their supervisor left them alone while he broke up a fight somewhere else in the facility. The four somehow managed to get onto an elevator and used staff protocols to ride to the ground floor where they simply left the building.

Morris Marsh, 17, is accused in the April murder of Charles Easley, the release said.
