Baby Born to Victim of Shooting; Family Without Insurance

DENVER (AP) – A woman whose husband was critically wounded in the Colorado movie theater shooting has given birth to a healthy baby boy.

Hugo Jackson Medley was born at 7:11 a.m. MT Tuesday at University of Colorado Hospital in Aurora. The baby’s father, 23-year-old Caleb Medley, is in a medically-induced coma one floor below where his wife and baby are.

Family friend Michael West said Caleb Medley has been showing signs of improvement. The aspiring comic is on a ventilator but is starting to breathe on his own and can squeeze people’s hands.

Friends have set up a website to raise money and seek prayers for the couple, who don’t have health insurance:  http://www.wepay.com/donations/support-caleb
