A man was hit by gunfire Tuesday night after someone fired into his Watsonville home where three children were in a back room, Watsonville police said.

The shooting was reported just before 10 p.m. at a home in the 100 block of Jefferson Street, according to police.

Officers found a 36-year-old man suffering from a gunshot wound to his upper left thigh, according to police.

He was taken to a hospital with injuries not considered life-threatening, police said. Investigators determined the bullet came through the front of the victim's home and hit the man while he was sitting on a couch inside.

Once the man realized he had been hit, he called for emergency services, according to police. Police have not been able to determine if the shooting is gang-related.

A search in the area did not turn up any suspects, police said.

There were three children in a back bedroom when the shooting occurred. None of the children were injured.
