Police told Tennessean that the five juveniles were arrested at the West Nashville Walmart, and that a gun and a stolen car were recovered.
Yorlets was attending Belmont University in Nashville and worked at a restaurant. He was also a member of the Nashville-based band Carverton.
Yorlets is listed as the band’s vocalist on the band’s Facebook page.
According to the band’s Facebook page’s bio:
Carverton is an American Pop/Rock band currently residing in Nashville, Tennessee. Carverton was founded by Kyle Yorlets and Michael Curry in the summer of 2014; realizing that their unique sound would fit better in a different setting than central Pennsylvania, the boys set off for Nashville with a couple guitars and goofy grins. Since the 2016 addition of drummer Christian Ferguson and bassist Michael Wiebell, Carverton have travelled the eastern half of the United States spreading the gospel of new-age Rock N Roll.
The band released its debut album “Carverton” in 2017.

“These kids, they were just kids. They should’ve been in school. It was in the middle of the afternoon,” the sobbing mom said. “They aren’t allowed to drive let alone have a gun! We are all just devastated..”
Tomorrow, Deborah and the rest of Kyle’s family is heading from their native Pennsylvania to Nashville Opens a New Window. , where the 24-year-old was kickstarting his music career with his band.
Kyle, who was extremely close to his parents, had just spent a week with his family over Christmas, and had planned on visiting again in just two weeks.
“He was my everything,” Deborah said. “He was very, very good at telling us all the time how much he loved us and how much he appreciated that we were supporting his career and that he couldn’t ask for better parents.”
