A man was shot in the leg in the 500 block of W. Franklin Street, according to the Baltimore Police Twitter account.

The shooting appeared to have happened in an alley by the Harborside Nursing and Rehabilitation Center in the Seton Hill neighborhood, but no other information about the incident was immediately available.

The shooting took place opposite Select Lounge where officers shot and killed a plainclothes policeman last year. A bouncer at the bar said the lounge was not connected to the shooting Thursday.
