A high school sophomore who pleaded guilty to attempted murder for a school cafeteria shooting in Baltimore County was sentenced to 35 years in prison.
Deputy State's Attorney John Cox said 15-year-old Robert Gladden Jr. was sentenced Monday for the shooting at Perry Hall High School last year.
Gladden pleaded guilty last week to attempted first-degree murder as part of a plea bargain. Gladden also pleaded guilty to using a firearm in a crime of violence.
The shooting involved 17-year-old Daniel Borowy, who was hit in the back with a shotgun blast Aug. 27, the first day of classes at Perry Hall High School. Borowy, who has Down syndrome, missed more than two months of school while recuperating from his injuries.
