Statement from Corey Tiller:
Last Saturday, I was involved in an altercation in Brook Park, in which I sustained a gunshot wound to the chest. I would like to thank the first responders and my medical team at MetroHealth for the care I have received, as well as the Cleveland community for their well wishes and prayers. However, I am still recovering from my chest injury and ask that the media respect my privacy, and the privacy of my loved ones, at this time.
