Guard injured in FedEx facility shooting in medically-induced coma

MARIETTA, Ga. -- The security guard injured in a shooting at a Kennesaw FedEx facility last April is in a medically-induced coma after emergency surgery, according to an online post from his wife.

On April 29, 2014, Christopher Sparkman was shot at point-blank range in the abdomen by a man identified by police as 19-year-old Geddy Kramer. Kramer went on to the shoot five other people before turning the gun on himself.

Sparkman was released from the hospital last August, but has continued to undergo medical procedures.

According to a post by Sparkman's wife, Jamie Lynn, he underwent emergency surgery due to complications on Sunday.

Sunday afternoon, Jamie Lynn posted:

Surgeons hoped to have repaired complications in OR. Chris remains in a medically induced coma until further notice. Mentally, he can't take much more. We need your prayers.
