A man told Richland County Sheriff's deputies he was shot in an incident on Trotter Road early this morning.
The man said he was walking home from the Exxon station at Trotter and Leesburg roads just after midnight when a black Crown Victoria pulled up next to him.
The victim said a man got out of the car and approached him with a gun. The victim said he swatted the gun away from his face and it fired. The suspects then left in the car.
When the victim got home, he discovered he'd been shot in the upper body and went to Providence Northeast for treatment. The sheriff's department, which is investigating the incident, said the wound was not life-threatening.
