WILKES-BARRE - A man was reportedly shot in the leg at the Sherman Hills apartment complex.

He was taken by ambulance to a local hospital around 6:05 p.m. Neither the name of the victim nor his condition were available.

The shooting occurred in the area of building 308 on North Empire Court and the man ran down the roadway to building 320.

A woman said the victim is the boyfriend of her sister who lives in building 320. The woman declined to provide her name and that of the victim.

A trail of blood led from the sidewalk outside the building to an inside stairwell.

Police officers with their guns drawn slid open a shattered glass door to get inside a ground-level apartment at building at 308. They did not take anyone into custody. Officers picked up several shell casings from the parking lot in front of the building.

A resident of building 320 who did not want to be identified said he heard between five and six gunshots echo throughout the complex.
