ASHVILLE, Tenn. - Nashville police have arrested the five kids they say shot and killed a 24-year-old musician Thursday afternoon.
The Nashville Police Department announced the arrests Friday.
Under Tennessee law, three of the five can be identified here because they are charged with homicide and they are over the age of 13.
Roniyah McKnight, 14; Diamond Lewis, 15, and Decorrius Wright, 16, as well as a 12-year-old girl and a 13-year-old boy are all charged in connection with Kyle Yorlets death.

“Police say they recovered a loaded 9 mm pistol, which had been reported stolen as well as a second loaded and stolen pistol.
The vehicle in which police say they used to get to the Walmart, a stolen Hyundai Santa Fe was also recovered. “
How else they gonna get they school supplies?
Feral children, gotta love them.
He is a “poor victim” in every sense of the word.
His home is in central Pennsylvania and the locals have set up a GoFundMe to help with his Funeral expenses.
Would they use them?
Roniyah, Diamond, Decorrius
As a musician who has many friends in Nashville, including my beloved mentor and bass teacher, I find this extremely disturbing.
Definitely Amish in origin.
Went over to his Youtube channel, he had a fine voice, this is a horrible loss.
The suspects include three girls, ages 12, 14 and 15, and two boys, ages 13 and 16.
An assistant D.A. said all 5 suspects should be tried as adults. Normally 12-year-olds cannot be charged as adults unless the case involves attempted homicide or homicide.
The 12 -year old’s lawyer claims the child was only there.
In response, the Assistant D.A. said She was there and didnt do anything. She is just as guilty as they are.
Kids, my ass. Hang ‘em! They deserve NO special consideration because of their age. If they want to act like savages, treat them like savages.
Depressing, just so sad.
These “ kids” stole guns cars and a life. They probably took his wallet and anything else that was on him. They grew up having no respect for anything or anyone.
Try them all as adults.
I dont care about age or gender. Every single one of them.
Life isnt worth less just because you’re older and someone younger murders you.
That isnt logical. Its demeaning and devalues a large majority of peoples lives.
Yep caught that. Animals behave like .......
What a surprise!!!
The Latin translation please..
Horse, tree, rope.
“Roniyah, Diamond, Decorrius.”
Aspiring rappers. They had probably never heard music before and it freaked them out.
