A Teenage Prank Turns Into Murder: Willie Noble Shoots Adrian Broadway
Prank turns deadly for Arkansas teen
On February 15 of 2014, while the nation was on standby for a verdict in the shooting death of Jordan Davis by Michael Dunn, another murder case was unfolding. A teenage retaliation prank turned into murder when Willie Noble opens fire on a vehicle of seven teenagers on a residential street in Little Rock Arkansas. The teens decided to throw toilet paper, eggs, leaves, and mayonnaise on a car in retaliation for a previous prank; but as the teens drove away, Willie Noble opens fire on their vehicle. In a panic, the teens pulled into a Kum & Go gas station to get help.
The gunshots fired hit one of the teens in the arm; however, Adrian was shot in the head. Adrian was never responsive and was transported to Children's Hospital, where she died. It is devastating to think a prank could lead to something as violent and final as murder. In dedication to Adrian, family and friends gathered to share loving words and stories then released balloons in memory of the cheerleader, daughter, and friend who they will miss dearly.
