SEATTLE (AP) - Police say a man was shot in the leg in Seattle for refusing to share his marijuana.

Seattlepi.com reports (https://bit.ly/1AKYh7t ) that Seattle police reports show that a 35-year-old man was standing on a sidewalk smoking pot around 1:30 a.m. Wednesday in Pioneer Square when another man asked if he could partake.
