The teens broke out of the downtown facility Saturday night.

Wright is accused in the killing of Nashville musician Kyle Yorlets. The frontman for the rock band Carverton, was fatally shot Feb. 7 and police charged three girls and two boys with criminal homicide. They are accused of stealing his wallet, demanding the keys to his vehicle and shooting him when he refused.

Another teen is charged in a separate slaying and the other two are facing armed robbery charges.
