German industrial metallers Rammstein have been implicated in a recent high-school shooting in Baltimore by the New York Daily News, who revealed that the perpetrator was a fan of the band.

Bobby Gladden, who is 15 years old, has been arrested and charged with attempted first-degree murder and first-degree assault for critically wounding a classmate with a gun blast on Tuesday (August 28). He is currently being held on remand.

According to a report in the paper, Gladden is described as "a misfit obsessed with a German metal band and the murderous Charles Manson Family". They researched the information from the teenager's Facebook page, which featured a picture of Rammstein singer Till Lindemann.

During the assault, Gladden fired two shots, with one bullet critically injuring 17-year-old Daniel Borowy, who is currently in hospital with a bullet in his back. Gladden was then restrained by school guidance counselor Jesse Wasmer until police arrived to arrest him.

Gladden's parents have issued a statement via a relative about the shooting, saying: "We are horrified. We did not see this coming and our thoughts and prayers are with the victim and the victim's family."

Rammstein have not commented on the story.
