Posted: Updated:

NAMPA, Idaho (AP) - Officials in Canyon County say a 3-year-old accidentally shot a baby in the face with a loaded handgun found in a car.
    
County public information officer Joe Decker says the 3-year-old and a 10-month-old were left unattended in a vehicle at the family's home Monday afternoon when the older child found a gun and unintentionally fired it, hitting the baby in the cheek.
    
The baby's mother heard the shot, rushed to the car and called 911. Officials say the baby was being treated at a Boise hospital for non-life-threatening injuries.
    
No charges have been filed. The investigation continues.
