A man is in the hospital after being shot in the leg by his stepfather at their Beech Island residence Monday night, authorities said.
Around 8 p.m. Aiken County Sheriff’s Office responded to the 700 block of Beech Island Avenue in response to gunfire.
Deputies were told a stepfather and son had gotten in an argument that escalated. The wounded man’s mother drove him to the Medical College of Georgia Hospital with non-life threatening injuries, Capt. Troy Elwell said.
The stepfather was arrested. No names have been released.
