A 15-year-old high school student who pleaded guilty to attempted murder for a school cafeteria shooting in Baltimore County was sentenced Monday to 35 years in prison, according to multiple news reports.

Gladden also pleaded guilty to using a firearm in a crime of violence. Both counts 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.
