Man shot to death in Tampa neighborhood where 3 others killed

Victim in Seminole Heights neighborhood could be related to random shootings

TAMPA, Fla. - A fourth person has been found shot to death in a Tampa neighborhood that may be targeted by a serial killer.

Tampa police said residents of the Seminole Heights neighborhood reported hearing shots just before 5 a.m. Tuesday. When officers arrived, they found the body of a man in the street.

Police said Ronald Felton, 60, was crossing the street to meet someone when a gunman came up behind him and shot him.

Tampa interim Police Chief Brian Dugan told reporters Tuesday that detectives can't be certain the early morning shooting is related to last month's 10-day spree that claimed three lives in the neighborhood, but officers are treating it like it is.

He said he believes the killer lives in the neighborhood and asked residents to stay inside until the search is completed.

All three were alone and had gotten off a bus when they were gunned downed at night for no apparent reason. None was robbed.

Police have been boosting patrols in the area and are using a SWAT team and dogs to search for the shooter. They have released surveillance videos of a hooded person taken after two of the shootings.
