Richland County (WLTX) -- Richland County Sheriff's Deputies are searching for two men who robbed a person at gunpoint shortly before lunch time.

The incident happened about 11:45 a.m. in the parking lot of Mid Carolina Steel and Recycling, located along Fairfield Road. 

A spokesperson for the sheriff's department says two men pulled into the parking lot and robbed a person who works at the business of cash. It's not clear how much money was taken.

Deputies were in the area near the business searching for the gunmen for several hours after the incident occurred. At one point, our photographer on the scene reported deputies blocking Wessinger Road, which is located off of Fairfield Road. A deputy on the scene told our photographer they had a search perimeter established, searching for the gunmen. A short time later, a tow truck was allowed that same roadway and carted off a silver Mercedes.  It's not clear whether the vehicle is connected to the case.

Authorities have said no one was hurt during the initial armed robbery. If you have any information about this case, please call Crimestoppers at 888-CRIME SC.
