Potential Fourth Victim of Tampa Serial Killer Found, Police Say

For almost a month, there seemed to be a reprieve from the mysterious killings that paralyzed Seminole Heights, a community in north Tampa.

On Oct. 19, 20-year-old Anthony Naiboa, who had autism, was shot and killed just 50 ft. away from where Mitchell had been slain. All were alone and had gotten off a bus when they were gunned downed at night for no apparent reason.

The Seminole Heights neighborhood has seen an increased police activity since the October 9 shooting death of 22-year-old Benjamin Edward Mitchell.

But a week went by without incident. "Here he is, helping the community, serving out of a food pantry and lost his life this morning".

Police identified the victim as Ronald Felton of Tampa, an unemployed construction worker.

"We are treating it as although it is related until we rule otherwise".

Officers say Mr Felton was crossing the street to meet someone when a gunman came up behind him and shot him.

Police gained a better description of the suspect after the fourth killing, saying a witness described him as a black male, 6 feet to 6-foot-2, with a thin build and light complexion. He was last seen wearing black clothing.

Qualcomm shoots down Broadcom's $103 billion takeover offer
As of 1650 GMT, Qualcomm shares were up 1.78% to $65.72 each and Broadcom had posted a 0.24% uptick to $265.61 per share. Broadcom has shown its willingness to buy Qualcomm regardless of whether it closes the NXP deal.

Dugan believes the suspect lives in the neighborhood, and he urged residents to be vigilant.

"We want to talk with as many people as we can, we don't think whoever did this has gone very far at this point", Hegarty said.

"This has got to stop", Mayor Bob Buckhorn said at the new conference to the Tampa Bay Times. "Because why? They're just targeting innocent people and shooting them". When officers arrived, they found the body of Ronald Felton, 60, in the street. And on October 19, Anthony Naiboa, 20, was killed after taking the wrong bus home from his new job.

Residents within the police perimeter - Osborne Avenue to Hillsborough and Nebraska Avenues to 15th Street - are asked to stay in their homes and keep their children home from school until an "all clear" is given.

The common thread was the Route 9 bus, which meanders on a north-south path from the University of South Florida to downtown Tampa.

Police and federal agents with rifles checked auto trunks, banged on doors and gathered forensic evidence in a Tampa neighborhood Tuesday as they hunted for the killer believed responsible for gunning down four people for no apparent reason in just over a month. Three: they heard gunshots.

Fifer said his dog's incessant barking woke him up around 5 a.m. Tuesday, as police cars and helicopters converged on the neighborhood.
