CHARLESTON, SC (WCSC) - The Goose Creek Police Department says a suspect wanted for the murder of a 40-year-old man may be traveling with his 3-year-old son.

Investigators are continuing their search for 24-year-old Stephon Johnson wanted for the murder of William Kuhn, who was found dead last Thursday evening 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.

Police say they have reason to believe that Johnson's 3-year-old son, Quantavious Johnson, is in his company and may be in danger. Anyone with information is asked to call 911 or the GCPD at (843) 572-4300.

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.

If you, or someone you know, have any information regarding any crime, you are encouraged to contact Crime Stoppers. You could earn a reward up to $1,000.
