Five minors have been arrested and charged with the murder of a Tennessee man.

A 12-year-old girl and a 13-year-old boy were also charged in the case, police said. The other two are boys, a 13-year-old and a 16-year-old.

Police said Yorlets was shot outside of the home, but he was able to make it back inside.

According to police, the suspects were in a stolen pickup truck in an alley behind Yorlets' home in the 3200 block of Torbett Street when they saw him outside.

While they allegedly took his wallet, the shooting is believed to have occurred after he refused to give up his vehicle keys.

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. He was rushed to Vanderbilt University Medical Center.
