A man who allegedly shot a 6-year-old neighbor and was released on $10,000 bond will return to jail after his bond is canceled.
A prosecuting attorney is seeking to jail 29-year-old Ryan Le-Nguyen, who shot 6-year-old neighbor Coby Daniel in the arm on June 6 in Ypsilanti, Michigan.
Le-Nguyen allegedly shot the child through an open window.
Le-Nguyen was jailed after the shooting incident, but he was released on $10,000 bond on Tuesday and ordered to stay away from his home. He is currently staying with a relative.
“We have filed an immediate emergency motion seeking to cancel the defendant’s bond, to return him to custody and to have a new bond hearing at which we can once again advocate for stringent conditions that we believe ensure public safety,” said Eli Savit, the Washtenaw County prosecutor.
A hearing on the bond revocation is scheduled for Thursday, June 10, according to the Detroit News.
Coby, who is expected to recover fully, told police he went into Le-Nguyen’s yard to retrieve his bicycle and Le-Nguyen attempted to hit him with a sledgehammer for playing in his yard.
Surveillance video obtained by FOX 2 showed the boy yelp in pain after a gunshot is heard.
The boy’s father, Arnold Daniel, told FOX 2 he is “trying to figure out how he got a bond so low for trying to kill my kid.”
