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.

Why didn't they arrest the

Why didn't they arrest the gun that got up and shot the young man all by itself? And word in the street is a knife was an accomplice. It should be arrested too.

sorry about the errors

sorry about the errors slurpy; I have had two strokes within the last year, so things get a little cloudy now and then. Thanks for correcting me though.
