When I was young and in school I remember some of the kids playing pranks on one another and then they had the opposite people playing pranks back on them to get even, with each one trying to outdo the other. It was all in fun, usually.

Unfortunately here is a case where it ended up with a fatal blow to one 15 year old girl in Little Rock, Arkansas. She is now dead all because of a prank that went horrible and tragically wrong. Adrian Broadway was only 15 with her while life ahead of her, but sadly no more because she was shot in the head and she died early Saturday morning.

A group of teenagers told the police that they had gone to a house to pull a prank on someone who had pulled a prank on them on Halloween. They threw toilet paper, eggs and mayonnaise on a car parked at the home but it turned into a nightmare as they were about to leave.

A man came out of the house and opened fire on them striking Adrian in the head killing her. Another teenager, who was the driver apparently, suffered injuries to his arm. He was transported to the hospital, where he was treated and released.

The man that shot at the teenagers is a 48 year old man, Willie Noble. He has been arrested and is being charged with one count of first degree murder, one count of a terroristic act and five counts of aggravated assault. He is being held on a $1 Million bond.

I know this was something no one expected when this little prank was set in motion. And I am sure this man came out there shooting not expecting to see a few teenagers out there playing a simple prank but now he is in a lot of trouble and a young girl’s life has been taken because of one silly prank turned deadly.

I hope everyone hears about this case and I hope it will make them think twice about pulling these kinds of pranks. I would hate to see another innocent child lose their life over a mistake like this again.

My thoughts and prayers go to all that was involved in this case. I doubt they will ever consider doing something like this again.
