Tennessee police: 4 teens escape juvenile detention center

One of the teenagers accused of shooting a rising country music star to death in Nashville escaped from juvenile detention with three other boys, including another murder suspect, police said.

They were all on work detail when their staff supervisor left them to deal with a fight at a different location inside of the facility.

It took cops 35 minutes to realize the foursome had escaped.

Decorrius Wright, 16, is accused in the February murder of Kyle Yorlets, according to police. Yorlets was a Nashville musician who was shot and killed when a group of five minors robbed him of his wallet and he refused to hand over his keys.

Police said Sunday they are "actively searching" for the teens, all of whom are considered unsafe.

Marsh is accused of murdering Charles Easley back in April.

That's when police say the teens got on an elevator and used "staff protocols" to get to the ground floor, where they "went through a series of doors" and escaped. The other two escapees, Brandon Caruthers, 17, and Calvin Howse, 15, both have armed robbery and gun possession charges, according to reports.

Decorrius Wright, 16 and Morris Marsh, 17.

They were last seen running on S. 2nd Street toward Jefferson Street.

"After further review of the Clarksville market video from multiple angles by an MNPD Juv Crime Task Force officer in Clarksville it has just been determined that the persons in the video are not the escaped teens", the department said in a tweet Sunday. Anyone seeing them is asked to immediately contact the Emergency Communications Center at 615-862-8600.
