FORSYTH, Georgia (41NBC/WMGT) – A man died Tuesday night, after violently attacking a Forsyth family.
A spokesperson for the Monroe County Sheriff's Office, Allison Selman-Willis said the incident happened in the 1600 block of Smith Road around 9:20 p.m.
“According to the victim, John Adam Bevan, 32, of Forsyth, he and his family
were traveling north on Smith Road when he noticed a man, identified
by deputies as Christopher Bryan Bunn, 37, standing in the road," said
Selman-Willis. "When Bevan stopped his vehicle, a Ford Explorer, Bunn attempted to enter the vehicle through a rear door on the passenger’s side,”
Bunn was able to get inside the Ford Explorer through the door, where four
children were seated, and ordered Bevan to “Go, go, go –move, move,” and attempted to reach the accelerator.
“Bevan exited the driver’s seat and attempted to remove Bunn from the
vehicle, who began choking the front seat passenger, Terri Lynn Barbour, 32, of Forsyth,” she continued.
One of the children was injured during the violent struggle, a child in
the back seat was kicked under the chin by Bunn, according to Selman-Willis.
“Bevan removed Bunn from the Explorer during which time that same child was
pulled out of the vehicle by Bunn,” she said. “Bevan then
wrestled Bunn to the ground and held him there until deputies arrived."
“When deputies arrived they handcuffed Bunn and found him to be
unresponsive,” added Selman-Willis. “EMS transported Bunn to the
Monroe County Hospital where he was pronounced dead."
Bunn's body has been transported to the GBI Crime Lab in Decatur for autopsy, to determine the cause of death.
"No weapons were used by either party in this incident,” she added.
