Fourth person shot dead in Tampa neighborhood, possibly by serial killer

Three people were fatally shot in the neighborhood during a 10-day span last month, leading to increased police patrols.

Tampa officers said they are investigating a Tuesday morning shooting death which occurred at Caracas Street and Nebraska Avenue.

Tampa police say residents of the Seminole Heights neighborhood reported hearing shots just before 5 a.m. Tuesday. That's when a suspect came up behind him, shot him, and left him in the street, he said.

Hegarty said that investigators are treating the death as related to the three recent unsolved murders in Seminole Heights. All three rode the bus and were alone when they were shot on the street. "The suspect is described as a black male, 6' to 6'2" in height, thin build, light complexion, dressed in all black, armed with a large black pistol and was wearing a black baseball cap.

- A shooting investigation is underway in Seminole Heights, police said, where one person was found dead.

Police said they believe the killer was still in the area, and asked residents to stay in their homes while they conducted a search. They have released surveillance videos of a hooded suspect taken after two of the shootings.
