Serial killer on the loose in Tampa, police looking for Black suspect

"We need to and will find who's committing these heinous, senseless murders and when we do, it will be because of people like Richard, the Seminole Heights community, Tampa Police Department and our partners in the law enforcement community who have poured their blood, sweat and tears into bringing this killer to justice". He described the suspect as a black male, six feet to six feet two inches, with a thin build and a light complexion.

NAACP Hillsborough Branch President Yvette Lewis told the Tampa Bay Times last week that she wants to discuss how police have increased arrests and stops in the neighborhood as part of a massive effort to catch whoever is behind the four murders committed since October 9. He appeared in footage from the night of October 9, when Benjamin Mitchell, 22, was killed.

Dugan said that means even reporting friends or family members if they weren't at home.

Tuesday's shooting claimed the life of 60-year-old Ronald Felton.

His murder, in the city's Seminole Heights neighborhood, is close to where three other people were murdered in apparently random shootings.

The reward has been increased to $91,000 for information leading to an arrest in the case.


"This person is able to flip a switch and go out there and murder someone", Dugan said.

Anthony Naiboa, an autistic 20-year-old, became the third victim when he accidentally got on the wrong bus and ended up in the neighborhood by mistake, police said. He was armed with a large black pistol and was last seen wearing all black clothing, according to police. "We love him and we love the family that the came from because they raised a good man".

On Tuesday, Ronald Felton, an unemployed construction worker who volunteered at a food bank, was gunned down. One retired Federal Bureau of Investigation agent says you should be. "Maybe I need to consider moving", Street said, shaking her head.

The police department is working on a serial killer theory.

"Finding this killer is a community effort", Tampa Mayor Bob Buckhorn said in a statement Thursday. He was shot and killed steps from his home while waiting for a bus at North 15th Street at Frierson Avenue on October 9. They have released surveillance videos of a hooded suspect after the earlier shootings. A city employee found her body two days afterward in a vacant parking lot half a mile from where Mitchell died. Benjamin Mitchell, Monica Hoffa, and Anthony Naiboa were all killed within a few blocks of one another, just days apart.

"I want people to look at the video".
