CLEVELAND -- It was nearly a year ago Tremont artist Jeff Chiplis refused to give up his cell phone and wallet when two thieves came to rob him on the outskirts of Cleveland's near west side  neighborhood.

"I remember saying 'No, I need those items,' and then I started running. I remember hearing a bang-bang noise. One bullet grazed my calf, the other hit me in the back," he said.

Did the incident last June change the way the artist known around the world works? What does he have to say to the men who held him up?

Jeff Chiplis grants his first interview since last summer to Channel 3's Chris Tye tonight in our On Location segment.
