Colorado Shooting Victim Improves as Wife Gives Birth

Colorado Shooting Victim Improves as Wife Gives Birth

After so much devastating loss of life in Aurora, the news of Katie Medley giving birth to a healthy baby boy seems like a small ray of light. 

Katie Medley, 21, attended the The Dark Night Rises premiere in Aurora, Colorado on June 20th with her husband Caleb. They had planned it as a final pre-labor outing —  the next day Katie was scheduled to be induced for the birth of her first child.

Uninjured in the shooting, Katie gave birth to a healthy baby boy, Hugo Jackson Medley, at 7:11am this morning. While mom and baby are doing great, Katie's husband Caleb, 23, is in critical condition after being shot in the head during the Friday massacre. Thankfully, he is showing small signs of improvement.

A close friend, Michael West, has helped set up a fund for the family to help defray what is estimated to be hundreds of thousands of dollars in medical costs. If you'd like to help, the website is calebmedley.com/help .

Our hearts go out to all the families whose loved ones were harmed in the shooting, and to the entire Aurora community.
