Gunman warned of rampage: Family
Relatives of a man who fatally shot two people and wounded four others before being killed in a police shootout say he had warned of going on a rampage.
Charles P. Steadman Sponaugle shot and killed his son and nephew and wounded four other relatives Sunday. Authorities say he was involved in a dispute with relatives over the family property in central Virginia.
Sponaugle's sister, Kitty Cooper, was among the wounded.
Cooper says Sponaugle indicated months ago that he planned to kill his son and two other relatives.
And Cooper's husband, Mark A. Cooper Sr., who also was wounded Sunday, said Sponaugle told a relative two days before the shootings that “he was going to kill a bunch of people.”
