Five Children Between Ages 12 & 16 Shoot Man Dead In Broad Day Light Robbery

Police in Nashville have arrested five children, among them a 12-year-old girl, in connection to the shooting to death of a musician during what was believed to be a robbery-gone-awry.

According to a press release from the Nashville Metro Police Department, on Friday morning detectives charged the underage suspects with criminal homicide for Thursday's killing of 24-year-old Kyle Yorlets.

Three of suspects were identified by investigators as Roniyah McKnight, 14; Diamond Lewis, 15, and Decorrius Wright, 16.

The names of the two youngest suspects, including a 12-year-old girl and a 13-year-old boy, were not released because of their age.

The district attorney will decide if the juveniles will be charged as adults.

According to the police, the five kids were in a stolen Chevrolet Colorado pickup truck in the alley that runs behind Yorlets’ house in the 32000 block of Torbertt Street when they spotted him outside on Thursday afternoon.

The minors accosted the man, took his wallet and demanded the keys to his car, which he refused to hand over, prompting the suspects to open fire on him, police stated.

The mortally wounded victim managed to make it inside his home, where he was found by one of his roommates at 3pm.

Yorlets was rushed to Vanderbilt University Medical Center, where he was pronounced dead from his injuries.

Later that day, officers recovered the stolen Chevy Colorado, which had been abandoned in the 1600 block of Timberland Drive.

Witnesses in the area reported seeing three juveniles get out of the vehicle. Two of them got into another car and drove off, while the third fled on foot.

Police said in the course of the investigation, they learned that the underage suspects had traveled to the West Nashville Walmart on Charlotte Pike, where all five baby-faced suspected killers were apprehended.

A loaded 9mm pistol, which had been reported stolen, was recovered from them. A second loaded, stolen pistol was recovered from inside the store.

The vehicle in which they traveled to the Walmart, a Hyundai Santa Fe, had been stolen from Brentwood.

Yorlets was a graduate of Belmont University who worked as a bartender at a Nashville restaurant and sang in the pop-rock band Carverton.

Photos: Verdict looms for man who deliberately infected over 30 women with HIV

Photos: Verdict looms for man who deliberately infected over 30 women with HIV An HIV-positive Italian man accused of intentionally infecting 30 women is set to hear the verdict today, October 27, in his trial for allegedly targeting victims for unprotected sex over a period of nearly 10 years. Under the pseudonym "Hearty Style", 33-year-old accountant Valentino Talluto seduced dozens of young women on social networks and internet dating sites, often dating several at a time. Out of 53 sexual conquests known to have taken place between 2006 -- when he discovered he was HIV positive -- and his arrest in 2015, 30 women were allegedly infected by him with the virus which damages the immune system and causes AIDS. The male companions of three of the women were also infected, as was the baby of a fourth, investigators say. Throughout the trial, which opened in March in Rome's Rebibbia prison, the women described how Talluto had wined and dined them, claiming to fa

Expect bodies in the streets of African Countries - Melinda Gates warns of the implications of Coronavirus in Africa

Melinda Gates has warned that there will be dead bodies littering the streets in African countries if the world does not act fast to curb the spread of Coronavirus. Ms Gates said this while speaking to CNN, on  the novel Coronavirus and its effects in the third world countries. She said she is worried for Africa and fears that the continent might not be able to handle the devastating effect of COVID-19. "Its going to be horrible in the developing world," she warned. “Part of  the reasons you are seeing the case numbers still do not look very bad, is because they don’t have access to many tests. “Look at what is happening in Ecuador, they are putting bodies out on the streets, you are going to see that in countries in Africa,” Mrs Gates noted. Melinda Gates, who is also co-chair of the Bill and Melinda Gates foundation, fears things will get worst for Africa once cases peak because of poor health care systems and lack of humanitarian supports.
