Man Charged With Murder In Prank Death Of Little Rock Teen

Apr 7, 2014

Prosecutors have formally charged a man accused of killing a 15-year-old girl when he fired a gun into a car full of teenagers he thought had vandalized his car.

Authorities on Friday charged 48-year-old Willie Noble with one count of first-degree murder and six felony counts of committing a terroristic act.

Police said Noble's car was spattered with eggs, mayonnaise and toilet paper on Feb. 14, and he told investigators he waited for the pranksters to return. When a carload of seven teenagers appeared about 45 minutes later, police say Noble fired.

Adrian Broadway died after suffering a gunshot wound to the head. Police say Noble told investigators that he only wanted to scare the teens, not harm anyone.

Court records did not list an attorney for Noble.
