Robert Wayne Gladden Jr., 15, has been charge with attempted murder after allegedly opening fire in his school cafeteria on Monday.

A hearing for the teenager accused of shooting a fellow student at Perry Hall High School in suburban Baltimore has been postponed, because he is still being evaluated at a psychiatric hospital.

Court records show Robert Wayne Gladden Jr., 15, accused of shooting a classmate, was accustomed to firearms in the home and had endured his parents' contentious divorce. The 10th grader was charged Tuesday 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  home in Kingsville where he lives with his mother and stepfather.

Court documents show they found 11 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.

A new bail review has not been set. There has been no update on the status of the victim.
