FedEx security guard wounded at work by gunman returns home

Christopher Sparkman, the security guard who was seriously wounded in April while on-duty at a FedEx facility in Kennesaw, returned home from Wellstar Kennestone Hospital Thursday, according to a message posted by his wife on social media.

The posting included a photo showing Sparkman, 29, smiling and walking down a hospital hallway as a crowd gathered to applaud. “On Thursday, I finally got to bring my man home,” Jamie Lynn Sparkman wrote. “73 days, 21 trips to the OR, and one walk out that has changed our lives.”

Sparkman was being treated for wounds that he received on April 29 when an armed 19-year old FedEx employee entered the Kennesaw facility at which he worked and opened fire. He has undergone numerous surgeries since. The Facebook post indicated that he has another operation lined up, but is being released for the time being to recover from other operations.

Sparkman was the most seriously wounded of six people Geddy Kramer shot before killing himself. He was found dead inside a trailer at the facility. Investigators believe he acted alone.
