A life-flight helicopter was dispatched to the Boys and Girls Club on East Queen Street to transport May who died shortly after being air lifted to a hospital for treatment.

Kuhn was shot in the arm was treated and released at a local hospital for non-life threatening injuries.

Initial police reports stated that the two men fired at each other during an argument. The Georgia Bureau of Investigation was called in to assist the Polk County police with the investigation.

Kuhn was arrested out of state by U.S. Marshals and extradited back to Georgia where he is charged with felony murder, felony aggravated assault under the Family Violence Act (FVA), felony murder under the Family Violence Act (FVA) and first degree cruelty to children.

Kuhn was charged in York County, PA with prohibited possession of a firearm, carrying a firearm without a license and failure to obey traffic control devices. A bench warrant was issued for his arrest on 3/8/2013 after he failed to appear for his scheduled arraignment.
