PINAL COUNTY, AZ — Two high school cheerleaders in Arizona are facing misdemeanor charges after posting a "hit list" online with names of nine students and a teacher whom they disliked. The cheerleaders told deputies it was just a prank and they had no intentions of actually shooting anyone, but the school district says this is no joking matter. Another girl on the squad says one of the girls behind the hit list had been kicked off the team the day this list was posted. A spokesperson says the girls will be suspended pending a hearing.
