Sherlock's Baker Street Pub Closes in Wake of Cop Shooting
Shit, no Sherlock.
The popular bar won a Best of Houston® for its open-mike night last year.
Sherlock's was where off-duty HPD officer Jose Coronado killed Omar Ventura in a parking-lot incident in February 2011.

Some critics said Coronado was drunk when he got into a fight about 2:20 a.m., others said he was trying to save a person's life. Coronado was no-billed by a grand jury but suspended without pay for 30 days by HPD.
Ventura's survivors have sued Coronado and also the bar, blaming Sherlock's Happy Hour policy for overserving the officer. A former executive of the bar's owners also filed a complaint over the cheap-drinks policy.
The bar will be replaced by another called Local Pour in the fall.
