JERSEY CITY, N.J. (AP) — A toddler struck in the face by a stray bullet while sitting in his family’s parked car has been released from a New Jersey hospital.
Officials say 1-year-old Mina Beshay went home Monday. He had surgery Saturday night to remove a piece of a bullet and glass from his face and is expected to recover fully.
The shooting happened Saturday afternoon outside a Jersey City post office, where the boy’s mother was getting a package.
The boy was sitting in the backseat when a gunshot shattered a window. His 5-year-old sister and their father also were in the vehicle but weren’t injured.
