Perry Hall Shooting Victim's Friends Call for Lady Gaga

Daniel Borowy, who was critically injured on Monday, is a Lady Gaga fan, friends say.

, the 17-year-old student who was inside Perry Hall High School on Monday, remained in critical condition Tuesday, police said.

The teenager was taken to Maryland Shock Trauma with a gunshot wound in his lower back after 15-year-old Robert Gladden Jr. in the school's cafeteria, according to Baltimore County Police Chief Jim Johnson.

Since the incident, students and community members have rallied around Borowy by , , and for his family.

On Tuesday night, however, friends began organizing another effort, a call for support from one of Borowy's favorite musicians—Lady Gaga. 

, a friend of Borowy, was one of hundreds—potentially thousands—of Twitter users who used the hashtag #GagaVisitDaniel on Tuesday night.

Davies told Patch in a text message, "We are trying to get Lady Gaga to come meet Daniel. It is one of his biggest dreams! Everyone is Tweeting #GagaVisitDaniel. Any help to spread the word around to get her to notice would be appreciated. Thank you so much!"

The idea to catch pop star's attention likely began when Stephanie Showacre posted the following on the Prayers for Daniel Borowy Facebook group late Monday night:

I know this is a long shot but my mom asked me to do it so I'm doing it for Daniel. He loves lady Gaga he keeps a suitcase packed so he can goto California and marry her so if she could go to the hospital to visit him he would love it. I need to spread the word because I need to get this to her somehow if it is even possible. I know I may sound crazy but I figured I would try for Daniel because he does not deserve to sit in the hospital with nothing to do. he is a sweet funny special needs boy that did not deserve to be hurt like that just because some screwed up idiot decides to bring a gun to school on the first day! so if you could help me I would really appreciate it, get the word out so share share share, I can be contacted on facebook so please help me, do it for Daniel! please and thank you ♥

A new Facebook page, Lady Gaga Please Visit Daniel, had received more than 4,300 "likes" as of 10:30 p.m. Tuesday. The page provided updates on Borowy's condition and urged use of the hashtag #GagaVisitDaniel.

The pop star, however, may not be available for a visit anytime soon.

Lady Gaga's European and South American tour kicked off in Finland on Tuesday and is expected to keep a tight schedule until December, according to her official website.

You know as a parent of a senior in Perry Hall High we talk about the bullying that I so believe is worse than school willing to admit but when it comes down to it there are many wonderful students who will do what ever it takes to be there for their fellow class mate and as the old saying goes " actions speak louder than words", so come on Lady Gaga let your action speak louder than your words: Please come visit Daniel ! I am very proud of our Perry Hall High students who have showen such great character! ;0)
