A group of pistol-packing teens and a 12-year-old girl are facing murder charges after they allegedly robbed and shot to death a rising country music star in Nashville, police said.

According to the Metro Nashville Police Department, the suspects are 14-year-old Roniyah McKnight, 15-year-old Diamond Lewis and 16-year-old Decorrius Wright.

Yorlets was a member of the Nashville-based pop-rock band Carverton and was also a bartender.

It is believed he was shot after he refused to give up his vehicle. Following the tragic news, Yorlets' bandmates in Carverton posted a heartfelt statement on Facebook.

A loaded 9mm pistol that had been reported stolen was found with the suspects, and a second loaded and stolen pistol were found inside the store, police say.

He was pronounced dead at a local hospital. Two of them fled in a silver or light blue crossover type auto and the third was last seen on foot walking on Mossdale Drive towards Bell Road.

The 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.

Statement from Carverton regarding Kyle Yorlets: "On February 7, 2019 we lost our brother, best friend, and bandmate..." We are heartbroken. Our condolences for this family and loved ones and all the lives that he touched.

Five teens, aged 12 to 16, have been arrested for killing a musician in a robbery gone wrong, police say.

The young killers were well armed - they had been stealing guns from vehicles for months, cops said.

Samantha Harrison, who worked at a restaurant where Yorlets tended bar, described the victim as someone who "made work not seem like work when he was around".

Yorlets was from Pennsylvania and went to college at Belmont University.

"I told the band, 'The album shows songwriting maturity, ' " Ferguson said, thanks in large part to Yorlets.

She asked people to "send prayer and good thoughts towards the Yorlets family, his girlfriend, his friends and extended work families". It is an autobiographical song by Yorlets, Ferguson said, who started a GoFundMe campaign to raise money for Yorlets's family.
