Police closed off an underground SEPTA station across the street from Philadelphia City Hall overnight after a shooting.

A 43-year-old man was shot in the groin and arm at the Market-Frankford Line's 15th Street Station late Sunday night, SEPTA and Philadelphia police said.

The man was taken to the hospital in stable condition, police said.

Police could be seen blocking off the entrance to the station next to the iconic Clothespin sculpture around midnight. Eastbound subway trains bypassed the 15th Street Station as police investigated, SEPTA said.

No word yet on a motive or any description of the shooter.
