An Arkansas father shot and killed 15-year-old Adrian Broadway in a car full of teens on Saturday night (February 15). Willie Noble, 48, has been charged with first degree murder and aggravated assault, among other charges.
Police told THV11 that 15-year-old female, identified as Adrian Broadway, died from her injuries at a local hospital after she was shot at a Kum & Go on Baseline Road just before 1 a.m. Saturday. Willie Noble, 48, has been arrested in connection with the shooting.
Officers said Broadway and six others were found in a white Hyundai Sonata parked in front of the business with a shattered window and a bullet hole in the driver’s side door. Broadway was unresponsive, and the driver had a minor cut to his hand from broken glass.
The victims told police they had done a prank at the Noble’s home when he ran out of the house and started shooting at the vehicle, according to the police report. Officers told THV11 staff that the teens drove down the 7200 block of Skylark Drive and dumped leaves and other trash on a car there; that’s when Noble came out firing.
The teens in the vehicle—an 18-year-old driver, one 17-year-old, four 15 year-olds, and a 14-year-old—had covered Willie Noble’s 17-year-old son’s car eggs and leaves in retaliation for a prank he pulled the previous year. However, the elder Noble ran out of his home, firing shots into the vehicle.
Shameful and senseless.
