HOUSTON – The man accused of stabbing an 11-year-old boy to death is expected to be in court at some point. Now we are seeing exclusive surveillance video of the run-in Che Calhoun had with police one day before the murder.
Police and family members said Josue Flores, 11, was stabbed to death Tuesday afternoon while walking home from Marshal Middle School.
Che Calhoun, 31, was captured without incident Wednesday afternoon by U.S. marshals in southeast Houston. He was charged with murder in the case.
Police said Josue was walking down Fulton near James when Calhoun, walking in the opposite direction, suddenly crossed the street and repeatedly stabbed the boy.
Sgt. Tommy Ruland said the attack was "unprovoked." Investigators have not identified a motive.
According to METRO, Calhoun was involved in a fight Monday around 6 p.m. at 2100 North Main Street. Officers tried to arrest him and he resisted. Officers then used a Taser. After the second attempt, Calhoun fell but jumped up and ran, METRO said. METRO called in the Houston Police Department K-9 unit to help in a search but were unable to locate Calhoun.
A woman who works on North Main didn't want to give her identity, but said she heard the commotion.
“He was fighting with someone else, but I just couldn't see with who,” the woman said. “I was scared. I was right there in the door.”
