COLUMBIA, S.C. (AP) -- Richland County Sheriff Leon Lott says his investigators have determined that former South Carolina football player Kenny Miles was not being robbed when he was shot in a parking lot near Columbia.

But Lott said his deputies still are not sure how the 23-year-old running back ended up with a gunshot wound to his arm Monday.

Miles was shot around 1 p.m. at an industrial park on a dead-end street just off Interstate 26 near Irmo. He initially told deputies a man was trying to take his championship rings and money.

Lott says the investigation and statements from Miles led deputies to determine the original story was false. The sheriff says no charges have been filed and the investigation continues.

Miles is expected to be released from the hospital Tuesday.
