Pleasant Hill police responded to reports of gunshots near Santa Monica Drive near Sun Valley Road at around 11:30 a.m. The victim was seen on the ground in the front yard of a residence waving for help . 

According to police, the man suffered a gunshot wound to his lower body. He was said to be in stable condition and is being treated at a local hospital. 

Based on a preliminary investigation, police said it appeared to be an intended purchase of marijuana at this location, chosen for its proximity to the nearby freeway.

No suspects have been identified, according to police. The investigation is ongoing.
