JERSEY CITY - A toddler injured during a shooting in Jersey City over the weekend was released from the hospital Monday.

The family of 18-month-old Mina Beshay called his recovery a miracle. The boy was struck by a bullet Saturday afternoon while sitting in his car seat. He was in his parents’ parked car when a bullet shattered the window. 

Mina had to undergo surgery to remove a piece of bullet and glass from his face. Doctors said Monday that he was well enough to go home.

Mina’s uncle Michael Beshay said that his nephew is still in pain and hoped that police “catch the shooter.”

Jersey City police said that the shooter missed the intended target and hit the boy instead. No one has been arrested.

Anyone with any information about this shooting is urged to contact the Jersey City Police Department.
