Police seek suspect in overnight homicide

Amarillo, TX - A reward is now being offered for a suspect believed to be involved in a homicide Monday.

Officers responded to The Granite at 34th, formerly known as Three Fountains Apartments, at 3308 Eddy Street, around 7:15 Monday evening.

On arrival they say they discovered a victim inside one of the apartments with what appeared to be stab wounds.

The victim was later identified as Perry Hooten.

He was transported to a local hospital where he died from his injuries.

An autopsy has been ordered.

A murder warrant has been issued for his son, 35-year old Shawn Hooten, who remains on the run.

The Special Crimes Unit was at the scene until around 3:00 Tuesday morning and continued their search near the Medical District in Amarillo, where they believe Hooten may have been hiding in some brush.
