Orlando, Fla. woman, 88, hospitalized after being shot 5 times, police say it wasn't random

ORLANDO, Fla. (AP) - An 88-year-old woman was shot five times while she slept Monday morning and was recovering in a hospital, authorities said.

The Orange County Sheriff's Office was investigating why Yuki Harris was targeted.

"We don't believe this is a random shooting," Cpl. Susan Soto said.

Witnesses said they saw three men leaving the area after the shooting, according to the sheriff's report. The woman was shot at about 12:40 a.m., Soto said. Deputies found several bullet holes throughout the house.

Harris' 58-year-old daughter, Michi Nogami, who lives in the same house, said she could smell smoke from a shot that entered her room just above her bed, the report said.

Sheriff's officials wouldn't release details on Harris' injuries.
