    APOPKA, Fla. - An Apopka woman said she is lucky to be alive after a bullet grazed her head and more bullets riddled her bed while she slept Monday morning.

    "Yea, I'm very lucky. I got three staples in my head. It just grazed. It didn't penetrate anything," Patricia Butler said.

    Orange County deputies said they are still searching for whoever fired the shots at the home off 13th Street around 3 a.m. Monday.
