Teenager dead after egging prank goes wrong



The weekend shooting death of 15-year-old Adrian Broadway has resulted in Arkansas father Willie Noble being placed behind bars, charged with one count of first-degree murder, one count of a terroristic act and five counts of aggravated assault.

Early Saturday morning, around 1 a.m., a group of teens in a Hyundai Sonata headed out to retaliate for a Halloween prank carried out by Noble’s son. The teens had tossed eggs, mayonnaise and toilet paper on a vehicle at Noble’s home and were leaving when 48-year-old Noble exited his home and opened fire.

Adrian Broadway was sitting in the Sonata’s front passenger seat when a bullet struck her in the head. She later died at Arkansas Children’s Hospital. The car’s driver, an unidentified 18-year-old, suffered minor injuries from broken glass. The remaining passengers escaped injury.

CNN legal analyst Sunny Hostin said Noble could possibly have a workable defense. “While Arkansas doesn’t have a traditional stand-your-ground law, I’ve learned that they have sort of an expanded castle doctrine law, which means not only can you defend yourself and your property inside your home, you can also do it around the perimeter of your home.”

Noble made his first appearance in Little Rock Criminal Court Saturday morning, where bond was set at $1 million.
