The most seriously injured victim of a 2014 shooting at a FedEx facility in Kennesaw is now home for good, according to Channel 2 Action News.
Christopher Sparkman was working as a security guard April 29, 2014, at the sorting facility when 19-year-old Geddy Kramer opened fire with a 12-gauge shotgun, injuring six people before killing himself.
Sparkman got shot in his stomach at point-blank range.

The Army veteran remembered pressing on his wound to stay awake and get help.
“I knew I needed to call 911,” he told the TV station. “So I could at least last long enough to make the call.”
Dispatcher: “What is your name?”
Christopher: “Christopher Sparkman. I'm losing energy really fast.”
Dispatcher: “Stay on the line with me.”
Christopher: “Please tell my wife I love her.”
They’d been married less than a year at that point.
In February after the 54th surgery to repair his splintered abdomen, he and his wife heard the words they’d been waiting three years for: “no leaks.”
“We’re stronger than we’ve ever been,” Sparkman said.
He has filed a lawsuit against FedEx accusing the company of negligence. The TV station reports that the case is expected to go to trial in December.
