Ex-South Carolina running back Kenny Miles (right) was shot during a robbery Monday in a parking lot in Columbia. He is in stable condition at local hospital.

Miles was shot once in the upper body around 1 p.m. in the lot of the park on a dead-end street not far from Interstate 26 near Irmo, Richland County Sheriff’s spokesman Curtis Wilson said.

Wilson said the 23-year-old Miles is in stable condition at a local hospital.

Miles was able to give investigators a description of the person who shot him, but no arrests have been made and investigators haven’t determined exactly what Miles and the suspect were doing in the parking lot, Wilson said.

Miles spent most of his career with the Gamecocks backing up Marcus Lattimore. He ran for 1,341 yards on 315 carries.

During his senior season in 2012, Miles ran for 359 yards on 104 carries as he got significant playing time after Lattimore was injured.

MISSOURI: Quarterback Maty Mauk is expected to start again this week in place of an injured James Franklin.

MEDIA: A former Miami defensive lineman who tweeted that he would pay $1,000 to any Hurricane who “takes ... out” a Florida State player has lost his job as a sports radio host.

Dan Sileo was fired Monday by WMEN, one day after posting the now-deleted tweet.

Sileo says he only intended the tweet as a joke.

The South Florida-based station says his actions “have no place in sports.”

VIRGINIA: Cornerback Demetrious Nicholson will miss the rest of the season with the lingering effects of turf toe.
