Authorities are investigating a Saturday morning shooting that left a 15-year-old girl dead in southwest Little Rock after a group of teenagers allegedly played a practical joke on an individual.

According to a statement from Little Rock Police Department spokesman Lt. Sidney Allen, Adrian Broadway, 15, was found shot in the head while sitting in the passenger seat of a white Hyundai Sonata at 12:53 a.m. at the Kum & Go store, 7620 Baseline Road. Broadway was taken to Arkansas Children’s Hospital where she later died.

Police arrested Willie Noble, 48, 7211 Skylark Drive, some time on Saturday and charged him with one count of first degree murder, one count of terroristic threatening and five counts of aggravated assault in connection with the case, Allen said in a later statement.

In the same statement, Allen clarified that there were in fact six other victims in the car when police arrived. Dshone Nelson, 18, who was identified as the driver in the statement, suffered minor lacerations to his hands from broken glass. He was taken to Baptist Hospital for treatment of his injuries.

Five additional minors, three 15-year-olds, a 17-year-old and a 14-year-old, were in the car when police got to the scene. Their current status is unknown. Officers found the driver-side window of the car shattered and a bullet hole near the door handle upon arrival.

The victims told authorities that they had recently played a prank on an individual at his home, at which point he came out of his house and started shooting at their vehicle.

There is a curfew law in Little Rock. Except for the driver, these kids should not have been out on the streets.

Why did the police arrest a man on Friday for a crime that didn't happen until Saturday?

Let's hear what the so-called prank was.
Pretend robbery? Flaming bag of doggy doo on the porch? This is an edgy city full of crime and scum and this guy must have felt threatened.

Parents, keep your children close to home. Always.

The parents need to look in the mirror on this one, a 15 y/o girl has no business out at 1am unless of course you are letting the streets raise the kid while you draw a check. Where is Jesse, where is Al?
