EUSTIS, Fla. - Eustis police said they're searching for the person who fired a gun into a house Tuesday morning, hitting a man.

According to police, 29-year-old Bradley Bishop was shot in the leg about 5:30 a.m. while in his home on Kensington Street.

Police said it appears that several shots hit the house, and one bullet went through a window, hitting Bishop.

Police said the shooting did not result from a burglary and they don't know if it was a targeted attack or a random shooting.

"We're not sure just what the motivation behind it," said police spokesman Robert Simken. "We just know the shots went all the way around the home or a good portion."

A neighbor told Channel 9's Myrt Price that the home was occupied by Bishop, his mother and two children. They said one of the children was sleeping in a bed next to the man when he was shot.

"Unfortunately, he had his child with him in the bed, and he had to cover his baby with his own body," said neighbor Stacey Williams.

According to police, Bishop's injuries are non-life-threatening. He was taken by helicopter to Orlando Regional Medical Center.
