Norfolk man with guns at school had hit list, police say

Authorities say a Norfolk man found with two guns in a North Carolina high school had a handwritten note that appears to be a hit list.

Steve Spence, 29, is charged in Greensboro, North Carolina with two counts of attempted first-degree murder, a weapons charge and other offenses. He’s being held on $2 million bail.

Police said Spence assaulted his girlfriend in Virginia Beach before driving her car to North Carolina.

Greensboro police said Spence entered the Smith High School cafeteria Monday and was questioned by employees, who called for a lockdown. He ran when confronted, but was caught.

According to warrants, Spence said he went to the school “to kill two different people” and the note mentions the school, includes the word “kill” and two first names.
