COLUMBIA, SC (WIS) -

An argument over a woman lead to a Richland County man to be shot in a rather unpleasant area, according to the Richland County Sheriff's Department.

Authorities say the shooting happened around 1:30 p.m. on Old Percival Road when two men were arguing outside a mobile home.

One of the men, according to investigators, left the area and returned with a shotgun.

The man fired, but deputies say he shot the wrong guy in the buttocks.

A short time later, law enforcement agents arrested 44-year-old John Edward Richmond.

Richmond was taken to the Alvin S. Glenn Detention Center to be booked on an unspecified charge.
