The child's father, Arnold Daniel, said his children were playing outside.
He said his son Coby went to grab his bike. Daniel said Le-Nguyen came out with a sledgehammer and said something to Coby.
Daniel said he didn't know exactly what was said but knows his son said something back. After that, the neighbor went back inside and Daniel said he shot a gun through the front window, hitting Coby 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 said.
Nguyen is being held at the Livingston County Jail on a $100,000 bond.
