(Newser) – An Arkansas father is facing charges including first-degree murder after a teenage prank went horribly wrong. Police say Willie Noble, 48, opened fire on a group of seven teenagers in a car late at night after they dumped eggs and leaves on his son's car, reports USA Today. Front seat passenger Adrian Broadway, 15, was shot in the head and died and the driver suffered injuries to his arm, CNN reports.

The surviving teens say that after a night at the movies, they decided to play a prank on Noble's 17-year-old son as payback for a prank he played on them last Halloween. "It was a joke. We was friends, we was gonna come over there and clean it up," one of Adrian's friends tells KTHV. "It was supposed to be a prank; we were supposed to get up right now, and we were supposed to laugh."
