LINCOLNVILLE -- Authorities are looking for two men who reportedly shot a man in his leg in a robbery attempt Friday.
Charleston County sheriff's deputies were called at 10:50 a.m. to Summerville Medical Center, where a man was being treated for a leg wound, sheriff's Maj. Jim Brady said. He said the injured man reported he was walking from the tracks in Lincolnville when he was met by two men in the area of West Carolina Avenue and West Boundary Street. One of the men showed a handgun and said, " 'Give me what you got,' " Brady said.
During a brief struggle that followed, the victim was shot in the leg. The suspects reportedly fled on foot, Brady said. He said the victim's injuries are not considered life threatening.
The robbers both were said to be black men, one about 21 or 22, with dreadlocks and a teardrop tattoo by his eye; and the other, light-skinned, 18 with short hair and 5 feet, 9 inches tall, Brady said.
Brady said the case is under investigation.
