The family of a six-year-old boy who was shot while retrieving his bike from his neighbors’ yard has filed a $4 million lawsuit against the men.
According to TMZ, Arnold Daniel, Coby Daniel’s father, says his son is struggling to recover after he was shot by 29-year-old Ryan Le-Nguyen and his medical bills are expected to be tremendous. In the lawsuit, Daniel said that his son will need psychological and psychiatric counseling because he is still in pain and shock from the incident. Over the summer, he revealed that his son would not sleep in his own bed following the shooting.
Daniel believes his neighbors Le-Nguyen and Michael Inhmathong should be responsible for the damage because they knew children played in the area and it should be their job to help keep the neighborhood safe.
The father also stated that Le-Nguyen has shown “aggressive behavior” towards the kids in the community many times in the past.
As REVOLT previously reported, Coby was shot in the arm by Le-Nguyen after he regained his bicycle from the man’s front yard. The young boy said the neighbor initially tried to hit him with a sledgehammer, but he was able to get away. Le-Nguyen then grabbed his firearm and shot him.
“He tried hitting me with a sledgehammer, but that’s not going to work because I’m too fast. [Then he] got a gun and boom — shot me right here,” Coby previously explained.
On June 5, Le-Nguyen was arrested by the Washtenaw County sheriff and charged with intent to murder. However, three days later, he was released on a $10,000 cash bond, sparking outrage from several community leaders.
Following public scrutiny, Le-Nguyen was taken back into custody five days later and his bond was increased to $100,000. “The defendant is no longer free and is already back in custody,” the prosecutor’s office previously announced on Facebook.
