An Arkansas man is facing first degree murder charges after he allegedly shot a 15-year-old girl to death over the weekend because she was participating in a prank on his 16-year-old son.

Shortly before 1:00 a.m. on Saturday morning, Little Rock Police responded to the Kum & Go gas station after a call about a shooting, according to KARK. Officers found a white Hyundai Sonata with bullet holes, broken glass, and four teens between the ages of 14 and 18.

A 15-year-old girl who was inside the car was identified as Adrian Broadway. She later died from a gunshot wound after being taken to nearby hospital. The car’s 18-year-old driver, Dshone Nelson, suffered minor injuries from broken glass.

The surviving teen victims reportedly told police that they had attempted to prank 48-year-old Willie Noble’s son by covering his car in eggs and leaves, KTHV reported.

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 explained. “As a result they were doing a retaliation prank and it ultimately had deadly results.”

After the shooting, the driver attempted to flee the scene to get help.

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

Adrian Broadway’s family and friends gathered at for a candlelight vigil on Sunday night at Benny Craig Park.

Noble was charged first degree murder, committing a terrorist act, and five counts of aggravated assault. (‘Stand Your Ground’ – I suspect he’ll walk, again)

Breaking News – ‘KARK meteorologist questioned after man found dead in tub’ (NOT the Onion)

Via: Arkansas Online – by Gavin

LITTLE ROCK — A KARK meteorologist was questioned after a man he was with was found dead in a bathtub at a Maumelle residence, police said.

The cause of death has not yet been determined and Maumelle Police Department Lt. Jim Hansard said KARK meteorologist Brett Cummins is not considered a suspect. Hansard said it’s too early to know whether foul play (foul play?)  was involved in the death.

According to a police report, officers responded to 16 Village People Way around 8 a.m. Monday and found the naked body of 24-year-old Dexter Williams lying on the floor of what was described as a Jacuzzi hot tub. Williams reportedly had what appeared to be a dog collar around his neck. It was connected to a silver chain.

The homeowner, identified as 36-year-old Christopher Barbour, told police Cummins had come over the night before with Williams. He said Cummins and Williams then began drinking and using illegal drugs, the report said.

Barbour reportedly told investigators all three men went into the hot tub, but that he left around 11 p.m. The next morning, Barbour heard Cummins snoring and then saw both he and Williams were still in the tub, which had no water in it, according to the report.

“After Brett awoke they discovered that Dexter was unconscious and his face was a different color,”  {“Oh my Gawd, a black man!} police wrote in the report. “He then explained that Brett screamed and became ill and left the bathroom and vomited on the carpet in the living room.”

“Our Meteorologist Brett Cummins was at the home (in the tub, holding the silver chain) at the time of the death and we felt we should share this with our viewers,” a posting on the station’s website, arkansasmatters.com, said.

“Brett will not be on the air as he is mourning the loss of his friend.”

(yeah, I bet that’s why)
