The 24-year-old murder suspect accused of gunning down a man in Dogwood Park last week may be hiding out with his 3-year-old son, Goose Creek police said.
Stephon Johnson, who was thought to frequent the North Charleston and Goose Creek areas, is wanted on a murder charge, police Capt. John Grainger said.
Investigators have reason to believe that Johnson’s son Quantavious Johnson is with him, Grainger said. The child may be in danger, he said.
Anyone who knows the whereabouts of Johnson or his son can call 911 or Goose Creek police at 572-4300. Anyone with information can also call Crime Stoppers at 554-1111.
Johnson is wanted in connection with the Sept. 18 shooting death of 40-year-old William Marshall Kuhn, of North Charleston. Kuhn had been shot once in the head.
Children playing at the park on Liberty Hall Road found the man’s body, authorities said.
The Dayton Daily News recently reported that Kuhn was a former Ohio resident who was legally blind and moved to Charleston two months ago for an opportunity to work a government job in a mini-mart. His family told the newspaper that Kuhn, because of his physical disabilities, was permitted to drive only during the day. They didn’t know what Kuhn was doing in the park or if he was there alone, the newspaper reported.
“They didn’t have to kill him, for sure,” his brother, George Kuhn Jr., told the Dayton newspaper. “He couldn’t defend himself. We’re just devastated.”
