(Newser) – Co-workers say the head cook at a Massachusetts middle school told them she had a hit list and would shoot up the school in an argument over burned cookies. Police say 47-year-old Wendy Ferris got upset Friday afternoon before the end of the school day at King Philip Middle School in Norfolk, Mass., because she had to re-bake cookies. Police say Ferris then told the school nurse she had a hit list, the nurse being at the very top of it; she also allegedly threatened to buy an AK-47 and shoot up the school. She's been charged with threatening to commit a crime.
