SUMTER, SC (WIS) -
Three men are in custody after one of them was shot in the behind during an armed robbery at a Sumter business Monday morning.
According to the Sumter Police Department, the robbery happened around 10:30 a.m. at Sumter Financial Services located at 547-B Miller Rd.
Police said three black males approximately 25-35 years old wearing masks and brandishing handguns entered the business demanding money.
The suspects obtained an undetermined amount of cash from the business before exiting the rear of the business. An employee at the business fired a gunshot at the suspects as they were fleeing and hit one of them in the buttocks, investigators said.
I'm not a lawyer and didn't sleep at a Holiday Inn Express last night, but I hope that the employee doesn't get into legal hot water for shooting a person in the butt as he exited the property.
