Charged & Arrested
A 6-year-old boy was injured Sunday afternoon while playing outside his home in the 1300 block of Candlewood Lane in Ypsilanti Township. Ryan Le-Nguyen, 29, has been charged in the shooting, according to an MLive report. The incident was captured on Ring video.
The young victim, Coby Daniel, and his father, Arnold Daniel, told the outlet that their neighbor first confronted the child outside the home with a sledgehammer. Le-Nguyen said something to Coby, who responded back, the father said.
Soon after, Le-Nguyen retreated back inside before allegedly firing a gun from his window at the child, striking him in the arm, the family and authorities said. “He tried hitting me with a sledgehammer but that’s not going to work because I’m too fast,” Coby recalled in an interview with Fox 2. “[Then he] got a gun and BOOM shot me right here,” Coby said.
In the Ring doorbell video obtained by the outlet, a single shot can be heard. “Ow, ow, ow, he shot me. He shot me!” the boy can then be heard yelling. Le-Nguyen’s bond was set at $10,000, which he posted Tuesday, allowing him to be set free. “I’m trying to figure out [how] he got a bond so low for trying to kill my kid,” Daniel told the news station. Prosecutors have filed an emergency motion to have the bond reconsidered. They had requested a $100,000 bond.
Investigators say the children were playing outside when Le-Nguyen heard a commotion outside his house, then told the children to leave. He then allegedly went back inside the house and fired a round through his window, striking a 6-year-old boy.
The boy had non-life-threatening injuries and Le-Nguyen is now charged with assault with intent to murder. His bond was set at $10,000. However, the Washtenaw County Prosecutor’s Office criticized the judge’s decision to allow bond. Now the prosecutor’s office is pushing to have the suspect’s bond revoked and Nguyen placed back in police custody, MLive reported.
