Authorities say a 15-year-boy has been charged as an adult with attempted first-degree murder in a shooting at a Baltimore County High School.
Baltimore County police said early Tuesday that Robert Gladden Jr. has also been charged with first-degree assault. He is being held without bail at the Baltimore County Detention Center.
Authorities say Gladden opened fire on the first day of classes Monday at Perry Hall High School, allegedly getting off two shots and wounding a classmate before being rushed by teachers.
A hospital spokeswoman said the 17-year-old victim remained in critical condition at Maryland Shock Trauma Center on Monday evening.
Police plan to hold a news conference later Tuesday morning.
