TOWSON, Md. (AP) - Court records show the teenager accused of shooting an intellectually disabled classmate at a suburban Maryland high school was accustomed to firearms in the home and had endured his parents' contentious divorce.
Fifteen-year-old Robert Wayne Gladden Jr. was awaiting a bail review Wednesday. The 10th-grader is charged with attempted murder and assault in the shooting Monday morning on the first day of classes at Perry Hall High School.
After Gladden was taken into custody Monday, police executed a search warrant at the Kingsville home where he lives with his mother and stepfather.
Court documents show they found eleven guns, including shotguns, rifles, a 9mm handgun and two antique pistols. Police also found a spent rifle casing in Gladden's bedroom. His stepfather is facing charges related to those guns.
