Burton home residents robbed at gunpoint

Beaufort County Sheriff's Deputies responded to the burglary of a Burton home just before midnight Thursday.

Residents of the house told deputies that they came home while the robbery was in progress. Victims stated that they found two men armed with guns. One had a shotgun, and the other had a pistol.

The suspects reportedly demanded money from the residents and threatened to shoot them. The residents gave the suspects an unknown amount of money. The suspects then fled the scene.
