Daniel Borowy to attend blood drive in cafeteria where he was shot

Police say Daniel Borowy was struck at random when Robert W. Gladden Jr., 15, fired a shotgun twice in the school cafeteria on the first day of school.

PERRY HALL, Md. (AP) - A Baltimore County high school student shot on the first day of school will attend a blood drive in the cafeteria where the shooting took place.

Seventeen-year-old Daniel Borowy (boh-ROH'-ee) was flown to the Shock Trauma Center at the University of Maryland Medical Center after the shooting at Perry Hall High School. Another student was charged in the shooting, which police said was random.

Borowy recently returned to classes.

He plans to attend Tuesday afternoon's blood drive, which is being hosted by the University of Maryland Medical Center from 3 p.m. to 8 p.m. in the Perry Hall cafeteria. Walk-in donors are welcome.

The American Red Cross has a shortfall of blood due to Superstorm Sandy, which forced the cancellation of more than 375 blood drives.
