Memorial to be held for slain Nashville musician
NASHVILLE, Tenn. — Mourners plan to gather Monday at a memorial service in Tennessee for musician Kyle Yorlets after the frontman for the rock band Carverton was gunned down during a robbery.
Yorlets, 24, was fatally shot outside his home Thursday, Metropolitan Nashville police said.
Five youths in a stolen pickup truck were in an alley behind Yorlets’ home when they spotted him outside, police said in a statement.
They are accused of stealing his wallet, demanding the keys to his vehicle and shooting him when he refused.
Authorities later arrested the youths at a Nashville store and recovered two stolen, loaded pistols. The suspects ranging in age from 12 to 16 were charged with criminal homicide, and prosecutors were seeking to try them as adults.
