Sgt. Nathan Thompson of the Clackamas County Sheriff's Office told KGW that the 24-year-old uncle got a gun cleaning kit for Christmas, pulled the gun's trigger, and fired a bullet through a coffee cup and into the child's cheek.

The toddler was taken via helicopter to Oregon Health Science University hospital in Portland.

According to KOIN, the girl had surgery on Christmas and is in stable condition at OHSU.

No charges have been filed against Bowman. The family is cooperating with law enforcement, notes
