The hearing for 15-year-old Robert Gladden Jr. who has been accused of wounding a classmate in school last month in Baltimore has been postponed.

Yesterday, Gladden's defense attorney requested the hearing be postponed until medical records from a state psychiatric hospital where the suspect was held are available.

Gladden, a sophomore at Perry Hall High School, was on a suicide watch at the hospital before being transferred to a county detention center.

Police say Gladden fired a shotgun twice in the school's cafeteria. He faces 29 charges, including attempted murder.

Gladden's attorney says the suspect brought the gun to school to intimidate bullies and didn't mean to shoot anyone. Gladden was sent to the psychiatric hospital for a mental health evaluation following the shooting.
