'Brutal' killing could be crime of passion
Police seek suspect in very public Montrose slaying
Man chased, stabbed victim in front of witnesses

Houston police spent Saturday searching for a clean-cut man who chased down a 28-year-old in Montrose late Friday, stabbing him multiple times in front of several witnesses before calmly walking away.

Authorities, who are still investigating the motive, said the killing could possibly be a crime of passion. Police have determined that it wasn't a robbery or hate crime.

"It was brutal," said Houston homicide Sgt. W. Meeler.

The suspect pursued Aaron Scheerhoorn on foot in the 800 block of Hyde Park Boulevard late Friday. Scheerhoorn had already been stabbed once when the pair arrived on the front steps of Club Blur on the corner of Pacific and Crocker around 11:40 p.m.

The suspect proceeded to stab Scheerhoorn several more times, including wounds to the chest, abdomen, forearm, left side and hand, authorities said.

Shake it all-night-long at Montrose’s LGBT-friendly Blur Bar. The two-story contemporary dance club—which is just around the corner from South Beach and JR’s—is popular for its stellar mix of high-energy hip-hop, Top 40 and Latin music.
