  Runaway killed amid scrutiny over lack of available care Tirell Hill, 14, was a troubled teen in the custody of the Department of Children's Services for nearly eight months before he was shot and killed Friday after running away from an Antioch foster home. He was among the children for whom DCS was having trouble finding a stable placement. A Tennesseanreport last month found that some kids taken into state custody were sleeping on couches in DCS offices or in a room of a Bellevue church because state officials could not find a stable place for them to go. Tirell was among them.

The Hughes family issued a statement Sunday via Beth Hughes Ulrici's Fabeook page confirming the 43-year-old is in stable condition but has yet to wake up.

Our family is overwhelmed by the outpouring of love and support.

Please understand that there are many false reports out there by people who say they are close to the family. We will post another update here when we have more news.

Matt is stable and has no broken bones or internal injuries. He has some minor lacerations and bruising and is currently being weaned from his ventilator. He is not yet awake and not responding as we would like to see but we see the fight in him.

Matts strength and determination along with God's Mercy and Grace will bring him through this.

We ask that you all continue to pray.
