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.

Authorities are still working to determine what led to the gunfire. But they don't believe the family was the shooter's target.

No arrests have been made.
