GREENVILLE, SC (FOX Carolina) -

Deputies are searching for two suspects in connection to a shooting in Greenville County Monday night.

Deputies say they responded to Picardy Drive in Piedmont after calls that a victim had been shot there.

When deputies arrived on scene they located a male victim with at least one gunshot wound. Dispatchers say he was shot in the leg.

Preliminary investigations reveal that two male suspects approached the homeowner and produced a gun, shooting the victim, deputies say. The suspects then fled from the scene in a black Dodge Charger in an unknown direction, deputies say.

Deputies describe one of the suspects as a short male with dreads who was wearing a red shirt and dark colored jeans. They say the other suspect was a tall, slender male wearing a burgundy shirt and dark jeans.

The victim was transported via EMS to a local hospital with what appears to be non-life threatening injuries, deputies report.

It is being investigated as a possible armed robbery.

There were children inside the home at the time of the shooting, but they were not hurt.
