Man Released on $10K Bond After Video Shows Him Shooting a 6-Year-Old Boy

A Michigan father is outraged after their neighbor received a low bond for shooting their six-year-old as he retrieved his bicycle from the neighbor’s front yard.

Arnold Daniel claims his children were riding their bikes outside before leaving one of them on the neighbor’s front lawn. When his son Coby went back to retrieve the bike, the neighbor came out with a sledgehammer and exchanged words with the boy before firing a gun through the front window and hitting Coby in his arm.

“He tried hitting me with a sledgehammer but that’s not going to work because I’m too fast,” Coby said. “[Then he] got a gun and BOOM shot me right here.”

Home security footage shows the children playing outside before a gunshot is heard and Coby realizes he’s been hit. As Coby yelled out in pain, an older child requested for the police to be called.

The neighbor, who was identified as Ryan Le-Nguyen, was arrested and charged with assault with intent to murder. However, he was released on a $10,000 bond three days later. Arnold, who admitted to having issues with Le-Nguyen in the past, is questioning how the bail amount can be so low for an adult attempting to kill a child.

“I’m trying to figure out he got a bond so low for trying to kill my kid,” Arnold said.

A hospital doctor told Arnold that if the bullet hit Coby an inch in either direction, it would have likely killed his son. Fortunately for the father, the bullet went through the six-year-old’s arm and he’s expected to make a full recovery.

After Le-Nguyen was bailed out by a family member, he was ordered not to return home. The prosecutor’s office is reportedly shocked by the low bond and has filed an emergency motion to raise the bond to $100,000.
