NACOGDOCHES, TX (KTRE) -

The 8-month-old baby girl injured in an accidental shooting incident that occurred in Nacogdoches' Oak Hill Plaza on Oct. 29 has been released from the hospital.

"According to the investigator on the case, the child was released from the hospital several days ago," Sgt. Greg Sowell, the public information officer for the Nacogdoches Police Department, said. "The case has been turned over to the District Attorney for presentation to the grand jury."

Sowell said that he has no further information on the baby's condition. The infant was shot in the face.

Nacogdoches police officers, firefighters, and paramedics responded to the apartment complex located in the 1500 block of Dolph Street at approximately 1:58 a.m. on Oct. 29.

According to police reports, several people were in the apartment at the time of the shooting. A 19-year-old woman was seated holding the infant. At the same time, a 21-year-old man was unloading a 9 mm pistol.

When the pistol accidentally discharged, it struck the man in his left hand. It then struck the young woman in the left hand before striking the baby in the face. The bullet continued on and entered the residence next door, where it lodged in a piece of furniture. No one was injured in the adjoining apartment.

The investigation into this incident is continuing. No charges have been filed, and no arrests have been made in this incident. At the time, Sowell said the incident is being treated as an accidental shooting.
