Subsequently, the mother, Alicia, informed the other victim, her younger son Malachi Kennedy, about the altercation. Meanwhile, the other son, Malachi, went on a hunt to find Amaiziah Hohenkirk. While searching, he found out the victim was standing along with a person named Sean, their meeting again led to a heated argument between the two. 

Following the argument, Sean and the victim reached Alicia’s premises for the confrontation. As per the reports, Sean brought a hockey stick along with him which he struck on Alicia’s left wrist. As a result of this, Alicia took a knife and stabbed Amaiziah Hohenkirk in the abdomen and on his left and right wrists.
