Willis’ girlfriend, Shayla Ellis, and her brother reportedly walked up soon afterward. When sirens were heard in the distance, Willis and Ellis’ brother ran away from the scene in different directions.

Officers interviewed Shayla Ellis, who was found walking away from the area. Ellis stated that Willis is her boyfriend, and that they had driven from Michigan to visit her sister on Archwood Drive. Ellis told police they argued the whole trip, and said that Willis had punched her in the mouth near Mallard Drive. Ellis stated she then scratched Willis on the face and ran from the vehicle because the key had broken off in the ignition.

Officer B. Hendricks noted in his report that Ellis had a swollen lip and a missing tooth. A black 2006 Chevrolet Equinox with a Michigan license plate was found unoccupied at the intersection of Tobacco Road and Mallard Drive.

There was a second altercation between Willis and some friends and relatives of Ellis at an Archwood Drive residence. Willis was reportedly punched at least once in the face before being shot.

Several people were interviewed and detained at District One Criminal Investigations overnight. “I intend to charge Justin Wiggins with Attempted Homicide and patrol officers will charge Willis with Domestic Assault,” stated Detective Ron Parrish. “I also intend to charge four people for providing false information,” Parrish added.

Officers were unable to locate Willis, but they found two expended 12 gauge, #8 shot shotgun shells on the 1200 block of Archwood. Willis is described as a black, male, 38, from Taylor, Michigan. He was last seen wearing orange shorts and no shirt. No photograph is available of Willis at this time.

Anyone with information about the location or Corey Willis is asked to contact Detective Ron Parrish at 931.648.0656, ext. 5356, or call 911.
