Don’t worry – Nashville’s Animal Patrol Officers are on high alert!
They’ve already begun a sweep of every KFC and Popeyes in the city!
A 16-year-old boy who is charged with the murder of a Nashville musician is among four teenagers who escaped from a juvenile detention center.
Police in Tennessee are searching for Decorrius Wright and three other suspects, ages 16 and 17, who broke out of the downtown facility Saturday night.
The boys are believed to be armed and dangerous, the Metropolitan Nashville Police Department said in a news release.
Wright, 16, is charged with the murder of Nashville musician Kyle Yorlets, who was found shot to death outside his home in February.
Morris Marsh, 17, is accused of murder. Brandon Caruthers, 17, and Calvin Howse, 15, are facing armed robbery and gun possession charges.

Police said the teens were on a work detail when their staff supervisor left to respond to a fight elsewhere at the facility.
The teens then got onto an elevator to the ground floor and went through several doors to reach an exit. More than a half-hour elapsed before police were notified of the escape.
Yorlets, the frontman for the rock band Carverton, was fatally shot February 7 and police charged three girls and two boys with criminal homicide.
Police said the youths were in a stolen pickup truck in an alley behind Yorlets’ home when they spotted him outside.
They are accused of stealing his wallet, demanding the keys to his vehicle and shooting him when he refused.
