Prank turns deadly for Arkansas teen

CNN — A 15-year-old girl in Little Rock, Arkansas, is dead, police say, because of a prank that went horribly and tragically wrong.

Adrian Broadway was shot in the head and died early Saturday morning.

She was with a group of teenagers who had gone to a house to do a “retaliation” prank on another teen who’d done a prank on them on Halloween, according to the Little Rock Police Department.

The teenagers told police they had thrown toilet paper, eggs and mayonnaise on a car parked there.

As they were leaving, a man came out of the house and opened fire.

Broadway was struck in the head and died.

Another teenager, the driver, suffered injuries to his right arm. He was transported to a hospital, where he was treated and released.

Police have identified the shooting suspect as 48-year-old Willie Noble. He was charged with one count of first-degree murder, one count of a terroristic act and five counts of aggravated assault, they said.

Bond was set at $1 million.

“I got the news from my mom who said that Adrian had got a gun wound to the head, and I just dropped the phone immediately and started crying,” Broadway’s friend, Laguyia Bland, told CNN affiliate KARK.

“They was trying to be teenagers,” Bland said. “As you know teenagers make mistakes, and this was one of those mistakes.”
