Man shot in leg; suspects flee

Posted: Thursday, Jan 2nd, 2014

WATSONVILLE Police are searching for three suspects who shot a man in the leg Wednesday night.

According to Watsonville Police, around 7:46 p.m., officers were dispatched to the 100 block of Riverside Drive for a report of a male victim suffering from a single gunshot wound. Officers quickly arrived in the area and learned that a friend drove the victim to Watsonville Community Hospital.

While interviewing the victim at the hospital, he reported that he was walking in the alley behind 140 Riverside Drive and was confronted by three Hispanic male suspects in a vehicle. One of the suspects asked the victim if he was a gang member and then shot the victim once, hitting his left leg.

The suspects fled in a brown four-door Honda Accord. The victim's injury was non-life-threatening and was treated at the hospital.

Anyone with information about this case is asked to call the Watsonville Police Department Crime Tip line at 728-3544 or the Watsonville Police Department Investigation Bureau at 768-3352.
