A 68-year old South Carolina man was shot in the buttocks by a family member during a dispute over property lines, according to the police. Sheriff Steve Mueller said deputies were called to a home at 8:30 p.m. on Tuesday in regards to a shooting.

When officers arrived at the scene, they found a man with a gunshot wound to his buttocks.

Mueller said deputies interviewed a 65-year-old man who identified himself as the shooter, according to WYFF.

Deputies say the man said he was a family member of the victim and they had an ongoing dispute over property lines.

The man said he was getting his gun from his pants when he shot the victim, according to the authorities.

The victim was taken to a local hospital. Mueller said no charges have been filed. I repeat, no charges have been filed.

    I’m sure there’s a good “head up his ass” or “that’s where his brain is” joke here…

    No charges filed? What, can you just shoot people now?

      As long as the gun is “unloaded”, or falls out of your pants I guess so.

      Only if the gun was fired by your pocket.

        Then we should file charges against the maker of the pants. Those who made the pant’s need to be held accountable. Pant’s makers can not make pant’s that fire guns and get away with it. Prosecute, I say, prosecute.

          I’m with you all the way on this! Let’s just hope that they weren’t Levi’s Hero pants!

    I guess that family member just cracked.

    Over a property line….gees, hire a land surveyor. It would be cheaper than the medical and legal bills they’re going to get.

      I have an ex-brother like that. I’m glad I don’t live right next door.

    …and I’m guessing that no charges WILL be filed, and that the guy already has his gun back after suffering a severe finger-wagging talk from the sheriff…boys will be boys.
