Asian Man Released on Bond After Shooting 6-Year-Old Black Boy for Retrieving His Bike From the Man’s Yard

A young black boy from Ypsilanti Township is recovering from a harrowing experience of being threatened with a sledgehammer and then shot as he retrieved his bike from his neighbor’s front yard.

The boy’s father, Arnold Daniel, said his kids were outside on their bikes on Candlewood Lane when they stopped their bikes and left one out in front of a neighbor’s home.

When 6-year-old Coby when back to get his bike, Mr. Daniel said their neighbor came out carrying a sledgehammer and said something to the child.

Mr. Daniel said he didn’t know exactly what his neighbor, who is Asian, said, but he knows his son responded.

At that point, the neighbor went back inside and shot the boy through his front window, striking him in the arm.

“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 told the news outlet.

Coby is fortunate to be alive; doctors explained that he would’ve likely been killed if the bullet had been an inch over in either direction.

The neighbor, Ryan Le-Nguyen, was arrested by the Washtenaw County Sherriff and charged with assault with intent to murder. Three days later, he was released on a $10,000 bond.

Now the Daniel family is angered and confused. “I’m trying to figure out he got a bond so low for trying to kill my kid,” Mr. Daniel said.

    I’m so disappointed in the response of the father. He’s talking about being afraid of what the Asian will do next. I think his 6 year old son has bigger balls than him. This is why Black people worldwide need to bury our differences, look out for each other, and act accordingly. Not only should that Asian be dealt with, but also the judge who released him so easily. It reminds me of the judge in L.A. years ago who gave an Asian women probation for killing a Black teen girl. We as Blacks make it to easy for other races to abuse us. Including our own race.

      Tina Harris, you exhibit the worst in being Black, without using your brains to show how astute you could be in resolving this problem in favor of the family. Your emotional diatribe of hatred is saddening. Rather than ranting and raving, help support the father by putting together a defense fund for the child and get an attorney (pro bono) for the family and sue the pants off the man, sue to take his home, and make him homeless, and if possible, do prison time because his attack on a child was unconscionable. This is how you make change happen and not wasting your breath and energy on name-calling which gets you nothing but a tired tongue and nothing more.
