Lexington County sheriff's detectives are investigating what led to a shooting near Pelion Sunday morning.

Major John Allard with the Lexington County Sheriff's Department said deputies were called to a home on Sandra Drive around 10:30 a.m. and found a man with a gunshot wound to the leg.

One man shot another man in the thigh during a verbal argument in what appears to be a civil dispute, Allard said.

The man was taken to Lexington Medical Center and is expected to be okay, Allard said.

Allard said the nature and circumstances of the argument, shooting and dispute remain under investigation.
