Coby Daniel Wiki – Coby Daniel Bio
Coby Daniel, the 6-year-old boy in Michigan who was shot outside a neighbour’s home while picking up his bike, struggles mentally to recover and will need professional help, According to his father.
Arnold Daniel tells TMZ, his son is showing obvious signs of mental scars and has not been able to sleep alone in his bed, something he’d been doing since he was 2.
Coby tries to sleep in his bed, but Arnold says he always ends up next to him and sometimes asks troubling questions like, “Why would [the alleged shooter] do that?”
The neighbour, Ryan Le-Nguyen, allegedly shot Coby in the arm after chasing him with a sledgehammer. Coby put on a brave face describing the incident to a reporter for FOX 2 Detroit — but Arnold says his boy is utterly confused about why anyone would want to hurt him.
He says he’s set up an appointment for Coby to see a therapist next week to help him make sense of everything.
Physical therapy is also on the horizon, but only after Coby’s gunshot wound fully heals.
Arnold says he’s taking time off from work to care for Coby and cope with his anxiety. He says it subsided a bit once Le-Nguyen’s bond was revoked and police took him back into custody.
As we reported, there was a massive outcry over Le-Nguyen’s initial release on a $10k cash bond. His bail has since been increased to $100k.
Police say Le-Nguyen shot the gun through his window, and the bullet went through Colby’s arm. The little boy was rushed to the hospital and is currently recovering. Le-Nguyen was arrested by the Washtenaw County sheriff and charged with intent to murder. However, he was released on Tuesday (June 8), three days after being arrested, on a $10,000 cash bond.
“I’m trying to figure out he got a bond so low for trying to kill my kid,” Arnold said.
According to Fox 2, the county prosecutor’s office requested a $100,000 bond and was shocked that the amount was set so low. An emergency motion has been filed to raise the bond.
