Nashville police arrested five juveniles Friday in the fatal shooting of a popular local musician, PEOPLE confirms.
The attorney representing the 12-year-old girl argued in court that she should not be charged as an adult, in part because she cooperated with police after her arrest.
The oldest suspect is 16, and the youngest is 12.
Investigators say the juveniles were in a "stolen" pick-up truck outside of musician Kyle Yorlet's home. Investigators said they believe someone shot Yorlets after he refused to hand over the keys to his auto.
The minors accosted the man, took his wallet and demanded the keys to his vehicle, which he refused to hand over, prompting the suspects to open fire on him, police stated.
"She didn't run from there, and she didn't call the police", Miller said, according to the Tennessean.
Nashville Metro Police recovered a stolen red Chevrolet Colorado pickup truck that they believe was used as the getaway vehicle Thursday night, WZTV reports. He was taken to Vanderbilt University Medical Center, where he was pronounced dead, according to BuzzFeed. It was stolen Wednesday in Oak Grove, Kentucky.
Police said in a statement that Yorlets - a graduate of Carlisle High School in Pennsylvania and Belmont University in Nashville - was fatally shot outside his home Thursday afternoon.
The band was growing its local presence and was looking forward to the album's release, he said.
In a statement, Carverton says they are "in a state of shock" and "heartbroken" at the loss of their "brother".
"Our condolences for his family and loved ones and all the lives that he touched".
A former college roommate of Yorlets, Alec Koukol, described his friend as a "kind, friendly and charismatic soul ...who was very passionate about music". A second loaded, stolen pistol was recovered from inside the store.
In Nashville, they met Christian Ferguson and Michael Wiebell to "complete the band", which played at the Firefly Festival and has toured across the country.
