Former South Carolina RB shot in Irmo

Former South Carolina RB Kenny Miles has been shot in the Columbia area today. Sportstalk SC, one of the most reputable sources of sports news in the state, reported it first.

Miles was a RB for the Gamecocks for four seasons, 2009-2012. He is one of the more popular former players in the area.

Apparently, he was shot after a robbery. Just now: @sportstalksc: Richland County Sheriff department says Miles is in critical condition and his injuries are considered life threatening.

From the Kevin McCrarey story: "According to a reliable source who asked not to be identified, former USC running back Kenny Miles was shot early Monday afternoon in Columbia. The source said the injury isn’t believed to be life threating.
More details from our source: The shooting took place on or near Broad River Road. Miles was shot in the forearm. After he was shot, Miles entered a business and the people working there attempted to help to stop the bleeding. Miles initially asked that no one call the police, but the person or persons helping him insisted they call 9-11 because of the gunshot. Police arrived at the scene and collected evidence from Miles’ car."
