Suspect still wanted for man's murder; 3-year-old found

CHARLESTON, SC (WCSC) -

The Goose Creek Police Department has found the 3-year-old boy they thought may be traveling with his 24-year-old father, a murder suspect.

Investigators say they have found 3-year-old Quantavious Johnson and he is safe, but they are continuing their search for the father, 24-year-old Stephon Johnson, wanted for the murder of William Kuhn, 40, who was found dead Sept. 19 near a playground at Dogwood Park, along Liberty Hall Road.

Kuhn died from a gunshot wound to the head, according to Berkeley County Coroner Bill Salisbury.

Investigators say on Friday, Quantavious Johnson was brought to the police department by one of Johnson's acquaintances. Authorities say Quantavious was determined to be in good health and turned over to the Department of Social Services for placement.

Family members said they believed Kuhn, a convenience store clerk, was robbed before the murder.  They say Kuhn recently moved to the Lowcountry from Ohio.

A 13-year-old riding his bicycle found Kuhn's body around 5 p.m.  The teen returned home and told his brother, and they called 911 a short time later after returning to the scene.

Johnson should be considered armed and dangerous, and is believed to be moving around the North Charleston and Goose Creek area.  He stands 5'7" tall and weighs about 185 pounds.

Anyone with information is asked to call 911 or the GCPD at (843) 572-4300.
