AIKEN COUNTY, S.C. (WRDW) -- A man is recovering in the hospital after being shot twice during an armed robbery on Edgefield Highway just before 11 p.m. Tuesday.

A witness says he and the victim were standing next to their vehicles in the truck parking lot of Kent's Korner when a black male with a gun approached them and demanded them to turn over whatever they had.

The victim threw his coffee mug at the suspect, which is when the shots were fired, according to the witness. There is no word on the victim's condition.

The suspect left the scene before deputies arrived.
