TOWSON, Md. (AP) — Education Secretary Arne Duncan will visit a Baltimore County high school next month to discuss gun control.

County Superintendent Dallas Dance announced Duncan’s planned visit on Tuesday. Duncan will speak at Loch Raven High School in Towson on April 10.

It would be his second visit to a county school. Last August, Duncan addressed 800 English teachers at Perry Hall High School.

Less than a week later, Perry Hall was the scene of a shooting in which an intellectually disabled student was shot in the back by another student carrying an antique shotgun. The shooter, 15-year-old Robert Gladden Jr., pleaded guilty to an adult charge of attempted murder and was sentenced to 35 years in prison.
