Arkansas native Willie Noble is facing first-degree murder charges after allegedly shooting a 15-year-old girl who was participating in a prank on his 16-year-old son, the Raw Story reports.

According to the report, just before 1 a.m. on Saturday, Little Rock police responded to a call about the shooting, and they found a white car surrounded by broken glass and riddled with bullets, and four teenagers inside ranging from 14 to 18.

Adrian Broadway, 15, died from a gunshot wound after being taken to a hospital. The driver, 18-year-old Dshone Nelson escaped with minor injuries from the broken glass.

The teens were reportedly trying to play a prank on Noble’s teenage son, attempting to cover his car in eggs and leaves.

"Apparently Mr. Noble’s teenage son had done a prank on some of the kids that were inside the vehicle on Halloween night," Lieutenant Sidney Allen said, according to Raw Story. "As a result they were doing a retaliation prank and it ultimately had deadly results."

"It was a joke. We was friends, we was gonna come over there and clean it up," said 16-year-old Kortazha Williams, who was in the car, according to a local station. "It was supposed to be a prank; we were supposed to get up right now, and we were supposed to laugh."

Noble’s full charges include first-degree murder, committing a terrorist act and five counts of aggravated assault.
