GALLUP, N.M. (AP) - Authorities say an infant who was shot in the face at a New Mexico motel earlier this month is in an induced coma and will likely have severe health complications as a result of her injuries.

Gallup Police Officer Darius Johnson told The Associated Press on Wednesday that the 8-month-old girl was being treated at an Albuquerque hospital and appears to have lost hearing in her left ear and will likely lose her left eye.

Johnson was among those who responded to the shooting earlier this month.

The baby's mother, Shayanne Nelson, told authorities she and her boyfriend were in the shower when her 3-year-old son found a gun and accidentally shot the infant.

Lawyers for Nelson and Tyrell Bitsilly convinced a judge to postpone a preliminary hearing Wednesday to look over new evidence that includes video interviews and footage from a surveillance camera.
