GALLUP, N.M.— Police say an 8-month-old girl shot in the face by her 3-year-old brother in a New Mexico motel room is in critical condition.
Gallup Police Capt. Marinda Spencer said Tuesday that the girl's condition has not changed since she was shot Saturday in Gallup, New Mexico.
Police say Shayanne Nelson and her boyfriend, Tyrell Bitsilly, were in a motel shower when Nelson's child found a gun and accidentally shot the baby.
A criminal complaint says the 18-year-old Nelson says she didn't know a gun was in the room.
A witness told police he saw the 21-year-old Bitsilly wipe the gun after the shooting.
The baby was taken to Gallup Indian Medical Center.
Nelson and Bitsilly face child abuse charges.
It was not known if either is represented by an attorney.
