UPDATE: 11/5/13, 1:28 pm - If you thought it was kind of fishy that Miles did not want 911 to be called after he was shot, your suspicions appear to be warranted. Richland County Sheriff Leon Lott told reporters today that Miles was not shot during a random robbery, but would not elaborate. A couple media outlets are saying drugs were likely involved.

UPDATE: 5:09 pm - WLTX is reporting that Miles is now in stable condition.
