MONTGOMERY, AL (WSFA) - The Robert E. Lee High School student accused of shooting and injuring another student is now facing two additional charges, according to court documents.

Quinterrious Norman has been formally charged with burglary third degree and theft of property second degree, court documents indicate.

Montgomery County Circuit Court Judge Troy Massey has also ordered a mental evaluation for Norman.

Last week, Norman was charged with first-degree assault, discharging a firearm in an occupied vehicle and certain persons forbidden to carry a pistol.

Court documents indicate that on Tuesday, Norman broke into a residence by prying open the back door. After entering the home, Norman allegedly rummaged through the residence and stole a Smith and Wesson .40-caliber handgun valued at $349.

Investigators say on Thursday around 3 p.m., Norman then used the gun from the burglary and fired numerous times in the direction of Lee High School as students were being released.

At Friday's bond hearing, a prosecutor said Norman confessed to police that he left school early Thursday, went home to get a gun, then came back to campus to shoot a specific person.

Massey revoked Norman's bond, saying his actions were "extremely reckless." Massey then ordered Norman to be detained until further notice.
