Adrian Broadway, 15, should be alive right now. The shockingly stupid and brutal reason she isn't will test the limits of your forgiveness: she was shot in the head by a grown man for egging his son's car.
Just after midnight, Willie Noble, 48, saw a car full of teenagers backing out of his driveway, having just covered his son's car with eggs, mayonnaise and leaves - a childish prank in retaliation for one Noble's son pulled last Halloween.
Noble fired four shots into the car full of teenagers, shattering the windshield of the vehicle, injuring the driver Dshone Nelson, 18, and fatally wounding Broadway.
The teenagers fled to a nearby gas station and called for help. Paramedics rushed Broadway to a nearby children's hospital, where she died from the gunshot.
Noble has been arrested and charged with first degree murder, committing a terrorist act and five counts of aggravated assault.
Kortazha Williams, 16, was with Broadway when she was killed and said the prank wasn't even done in malice.
It was a joke. We was friends, we was gonna come over there and clean it up... It was supposed to be a prank; we were supposed to get up right now, and we were supposed to laugh.
Local police have concluded the prank was part of a "friendly feud" and say there's no way the teens could have anticipated fatal consequences for their "mischievous" actions.
When those kids set out to go out and do this... they didn't think that it would end up being a deadly prank.
At a candlelight vigil for Broadway, her friends and family expressed their sorrow and shared memories of the "young lady" they described as goofy, outgoing and the life of the party.
