YPSILANTI TWP., Mich. – A Michigan man accused of shooting his 6-year-old neighbor has been released from jail after being given an extremely low bond.
According to MLive report, Ryan Le-Nguyen, 29, was charged with the shooting and released on $10,000 bond.
Investigators say the shooting took place around 4:30 p.m. on June 6 when the boy was playing with members of his family near Le-Nguyen’s home.
According to officials, Le-Nguyen came outside and told the children to leave. He then went back inside the house and fired a round through his window, striking the 6-year-old in the arm.
The incident was captured by a nearby Ring video camera. The video shows the boy picking up a bike outside of Nguyen’s house when the shot is fired.
According to Washtenaw County Sheriff spokesman Derrick Jackson, the 6-year-old suffered non-life threatening injuries. Le-Nguyen was arrested and charged with assault with intent to murder, Jackson added.
Le-Nguyen was released after posting a $10,000 bail set by Judge Elisha Fink of Washtenaw County 14-A District Court.
Her decision to release the man on such a low bail was harshly criticized by county prosecutor Eli Savit early Wednesday in a Facebook video.
According to the Washtenaw County Prosecutor’s Office, one of the condition of Le-Nguyen’s bond is that he cannot return to his residence.
Savit is now pushing to have Le-Nguyen’s bond revoked and have him placed back in police custody.
