Report: Man shot after being told to pull pants down


An Orangeburg man is recovering after being shot in the thigh early Thursday morning.

According to an Orangeburg County Sheriff's Department incident report, the man says he was walking along Main Avenue near Edisto Drive when two men in a small red car approached him around 4:40 a.m.

One of the men got out of the vehicle, pointed a gun at the victim and told him to give up his money. When the victim said he did not have any money, the suspect told him to pull his pants down so that he could check for cash, the report stated.

That's when the suspect shot the victim in the left thigh/knee area, according to the report.

The suspects then left in the red car. The victim told investigators that he did not know the men.

The victim was transported to an area hospital. His condition was not immediately available.

Deputies have not released a description of the suspects.
