A second victim of the mass shooting at a Kennesaw FedEx facility has been identified and is recovering at a local hospital.

Melissa Shadow, 52, was wounded when co-worker Geddy Kramer, 19, walked in with a shotgun and opened fire, according to a report by Channel 2 Action News. Kramer wounded six people before killing himself with the gun Tuesday.

Christopher Sparkman, 28, was in critical condition following the shooting, but was upgraded to serious condition Friday. He was working as a security guard and was the first person shot by Kramer. The other four victims were treated and released and have not been identified.

The TV station said Shadow was booked into Wellstar Kennestone Hospital with birdshot wounds ranging from the top of her chest to her knees. She was shot at a greater distance than Sparkman, lessening the impact of the bullet.

Witnesses described Kramer as looking “like Rambo” with ammunition draped across his chest when he opened fire. Kramer was a 2013 graduate of North Cobb High School.
