Loved ones remember Nashville musician killed in robbery

NASHVILLE, Tenn. (AP) — Family and friends say a young Nashville musician who was shot to death outside his home last week was witty, musically talented and had an easy way of making others feel he cared about their struggles.

The comments came at a Monday memorial service for 24-year-old Kyle Yorlets.

Five youths ages 12 to 16 have been charged with criminal homicide in the killing. But on Monday, those who knew Yorlets focused on the man rather than the tragic circumstances of his death.

The service was held on the campus of Belmont University, Yorlets’ alma mater.

Dwayne O’Brien was Yorlets’ music business instructor. He spoke of watching Yorlets grow from someone with raw talent to a disciplined professional.

Yorlets’ band Carverton was scheduled to release its first full-length album next month.
