Richland County Sheriff Leon Lott told reporters today that former USC running back Kenny Miles was not the victim of a random robbery. This information corroborates information we received from a reliable source yesterday about the shooting. We withheld some the details from our source until confirmation came down from law enforcement. Now that Lott has confirmed what our source said, here’s the rest of what we have learned:
Per our source, after Miles was shot Monday he drove himself to the business of someone he knows to get help. Despite the fact he was shot and bleeding profusely Miles did not want anyone to call the police. Someone there made a tourniquet for Miles, but they insisted on calling 9-11 and did. When police arrived our source said Miles changed his story at least three times. When we asked our source Monday night if drugs were involved he responded, “I can tell you 100 percent drugs were involved.” He said it was “laughable” it was being called a robbery.
Our source would not confirm if Miles was attempting to purchase drugs or if he was selling them.
Shortly after Lott finished his news conference a source indicated there was “more to come in the saga.”
