A man was shot in the leg at the Murphy Crossing apartment complex Wednesday afternoon.

About 5 p.m., two black men approached the victim, who was not identified, as he was standing near the entrance of a building at the apartment complex off Deans Bridge Road, according to Richmond County Sheriff’s Investigator Glen Rahn.

When the suspects showed a handgun, the victim began to run away and was shot. The victim was taken to Georgia Regents Medical Center with injuries that were not life-threatening, Rahn said.

The suspects were last seen running toward the rear of the apartments, Rahn said.
