A North Augusta man was taken to the hospital with a gunshot wound to the foot after he and a family member were robbed at gunpoint on Friday, according to the North Augusta Department of Public Safety.

Trotty told police that he and his uncle, Milton Williams Jr., were standing in front of 141 Chalet North Court around 9 p.m. Friday when they noticed several men approaching them wearing camouflage coats and masks, according to the statement.

The men presented pistols and demanded money from the victims, according to the statement. Witnesses saw Trotty being assaulted by the men before he was shot in the foot.
