A former Southern Colorado resident is in critical condition after the mass shooting at an Aurora movie theater. Meanwhile his wife, who escaped uninjured, has delivered their baby.
Hugo Jackson Medley was born at 7:11 a.m. MT Tuesday at University of Colorado Hospital in Aurora. That's the same hospital where his father, 23-year-old Caleb Medley, lies in critical condition.
Katie Medley, 21, went into labor Monday, the date that had been scheduled for the delivery before the shooting. However, she moved the delivery so she could be close to her husband.
While his daughter was in labor, an angry David Sanchez waited outside the courthouse where shooting suspect James Holmes made his first court appearance. He said his daughter escaped death by mere seconds. [Hear part of Sanchez's comments in the video above]
Caleb Medley suffered a single gunshot wound to the right eye and is currently in a medically induced coma. His condition is considered critical but stable.
Caleb Medley is a former resident of Florence who relocated to the Aurora area. He is described as an up and coming standup comedian and actor in the Denver area. Katie was his high school sweetheart.
A website and benefit account were set up for Caleb. The account is at the Canon National Band under the name “Caleb Medley Benefit Account.” Donations can be made at all Canon National Bank locations or online through the website.
