Three people escaped injury in another drive-by shooting in southwest Sydney.

New South Wales police were called to Levendale Street in West Hoxton about 1.20am (AEST) on Sunday to find found a house and two cars were riddled with bullets.

Three adults were inside the house at the time. They heard a car driving away after the shots.

A young man was shot outside a house in Greenacre at about 11.15am on Saturday.

AAP reports he was taken to hospital in a serious condition.

"We're quite used to it, we hear the sound of gunshots quite regularly in these areas unfortunately,'' a neighbour told the ABC.

There have been five shootings in Greenacre over the past year. Last October, there was a double shooting on the same road in which one man was killed and another injured.
