ORLANDO, Fla. – A woman had a laser pointed at her and was shot after pulling over in an Orlando subdivision to adjust her GPS, according to deputies.

The shooting happened Sunday night on Eastwood Drive near Kayla's Court not far from University High School.

According to the Orange County Sheriff's Office, the woman and two men got lost while driving and pulled over to perform a search on a GPS unit.  Three men wearing hooded sweatshirts then approached the car and pointed a laser at them, deputies said.

One of the men opened fire, shooting the woman and the car, deputies said.  The men were not injured.

"It's a felony to point a laser into an airplane or a car, even if there's no gun attached to it, but this person had a gun attached to it," Orange County sheriff's Lt. Paul Hopkins said.  "It was a laser sight and all of sudden, without provocation, this person opens up on this car. We're lucky tonight that only one of three were shot."

The trio in the car drove to Florida Hospital East, and the woman was listed in stable condition, deputies said.

Deputies said they currently have no evidence to believe that the shooting was targeted.

A detailed description of the assailants was not known.

Anyone with information is urged to call the Orange County Sheriff's Office.
