— An East Chapel Hill High School student has been charged in connection with a "hit list" on Facebook that was created two weeks ago in the school's computer lab, police said Monday.

Shiquitta Marie Moore, 16, of 176 St. Andrews Lane, Apt. 357 in Chapel Hill, was charged Friday with three counts of cyberstalking. She was released into her mother's custody and is scheduled to appear in court on March 3.

East Chapel Hill High administrators disciplined two students over the hit list, which they characterized as a prank. No other students were in danger, they said.

A second student faces similar charges in juvenile court, police said.
