“We’re glad the defendant is back in custody to keep the community safe,” Savit told USA Today.

The kid told Fox 2 Detroit that Le-Nguyen first tried to hit him with a sledgehammer, but he escaped. Police say the man then fired a gun through his window and the bullet went through Coby’s arm.

“I’m really mad,” the boy’s father, Arnold Daniel, told the point of sale. “I can’t function and I don’t know what to do… I’m scared for my family. I’m afraid for her because I don’t know what he’s capable of. “
