Yorlets were shot outside his Nashville home on Thursday, made it back inside and was found by a roommate, the police said. He was taken to Vanderbilt University's Medical Center, where he was pronounced dead.
The kid fled in a stolen red pickup truck. They were arrested late on Thursday night at a Walmart about six miles west from where Yorlets were shot, police said. A gun and a stolen vehicle were found in the kids.
All five suspects are held in a juvenile detention center.
Yorlets was a candidate from Belmont University, originally from Pennsylvania, police said. He worked at a Nashville restaurant and played in a local band.
