Adrian Broadway passed away Saturday morning after she was shot in the head by Willie Noble, a 48-year-old man that she and her friends were pranking.
Adrian and five of her friends smashed eggs, dumped leaves and poured mayonnaise on Noble’s car around 1 a.m. Saturday.
That’s when Noble rushed outside and fired two shots at the teens as they ran back to their own vehicle and drove away.
One of the bullets went through the back window and struck Adrian in the back of the head.
Since then, her friends and family have taken to social media to remember her as a cheerful teen.
“Laughing at old times,” Laguyia Bland, a friend of the victim’s said. “It’s, it’s going to be pretty hard to do that now.”
Another tweet said, “Can’t sleep. my mind & heart can’t help but drift back to Adrian Broadway. i am heartbroken. another precious black life lost to vigilantism.”
A family friend, Matosha Sherrer, said the family is still “just in disbelief” at the tragic chain of events.
“It’s unimaginable,” Sherrer said. “It’s – no words, no words.”
A candlelight vigil also was organized in Little Rock in honor of Adrian.
Noble is facing five counts of aggravated assault, one count of a terroristic act and one count of first-degree murder.
His bond has been set at $1 million.
