Can stuttering be caused by a traumatic event?

Anonymous
My youngest cousin is currently 6 years old and his stuttering has gotten worse. He used to speak well and fluently before though.

Flashback to April: It was 7pm and my aunt and uncle heard him screaming. By the time they got to his room, he started crying and couldn't explain what happened; couldn't even speak. He has stuttered ever since and barely makes out words.
