AMARILLO --  Amarillo Police surround a house at 3rd and Belleview, to search for a murder suspect.
        Shawn Hooten, 35, is still on the run tonight. Police got a tip that he may be in a house on the 300 block of S. Belleveiw. Police searched the home with a K-9 unit and the SWAT team, but were unable to find him.
        A family member walked though the home with police, and told us they expected Hooten to be there.
        The home had been vacant, according to a family member for about six months, and it allegedly belonged to the stabbing victim's relative.
        Lt. Jimmy Johnson with the Amarillo Police Department tells us right now Shawn Hooten is their primary suspect and they are still looking for information and if you know where he might be or have any information that may lead to his arrest, call Crime Stoppers at 806-374-4400.
