• Lawsuit filed against FedEx in shooting that injured security guard

    Updated:

    ATLANTA - The security guard injured last year in a workplace shooting at the FedEx facility in Kennesaw has filed a lawsuit against the company.

    Christopher Sparkman has had more than three-dozen surgeries since the shooting incident last April when a gunman, Geddy Kramer, opened fire in the facility.

    Channel 2’s Dave Huddleston was the only reporter with Sparkman’s attorney as he filed the lawsuit Monday.

    In the first few pages, the document lays out how they say FedEx could have stopped the shooting and that the suspect harrassed fellow co-workers before the shooting.

    The 100 page lawsuit says other employees complained about Kramer.

    One stated that Kramer pointed a laser pen in her eyes.

    A manager said Kramer told him he felt like he was "going crazy," but the manager says he did nothing about it and didn't tell anyone about the discussion.

    "They had a full life planned, but to say it's been disrupted is a grotesque understatement," Sparkman family attorney Louis Levenson said.

    FedEx sent a statement to Huddleston that said, "We remain deeply sympathetic to Mr. Sparkman and his family. The tragic and unexpected events were not caused by FedEx. Our top priority continues to be providing a safe and secure work environment."
