TOWSON, Md. — A Maryland high school sophomore accused of shooting a disabled classmate will be tried as an adult.

Baltimore County State’s Attorney Scott Shellenberger says a judge on Friday denied the motion to move the case to juvenile court.

Robert Gladden’s attorney has called the charges against the 15-year-old excessive and says the teen did not intend to shoot anyone. Gladden has been charged as an adult with nine counts of attempted first-degree murder and other counts.

The shooting occurred Aug. 27, the first day of school at Perry Hall High School in Baltimore County.

Prosecutors say Gladden fired a shotgun at random at a lunch table where several students were sitting, wounding 17-year-old Daniel Borowy. A guidance counselor and other school employees rushed the teen and wrestled the gun away.
