Richland County Sheriff's deputies are investigating a robbery that led to a shooting overnight at a Midlands motel.

Deputy Curtis Wilson says officers were called to the Economy Inn on Briargate Circle at about 1:45 Saturday morning.  A 28-year-old man had been shot several times in the torso.

The victim was taken to the hospital.

Wilson says two teens forced their way into a room for a robbery and fired several shots at the victim. An X-box was among the items stolen.
