Tampa police have released new video of man they believe is behind the murders of four people in the community in the space of a month.
Dugan described the suspect as a black male between 6 feet and 6 feet 2 inches with a thin build and a light complexion.
The first killing took place October 9 when 22-year-old Benjamin Mitchell was shot while waiting for a local bus.
"Whoever is doing it, they're familiar with the neighborhood and they're able to vanish very quickly", Dugan said.
Tuesday's murder comes almost a month after a killer shot and killed three people over the span of 10 days in Seminole Heights.
Dugan also said the Federal Bureau of Investigation added $50,000 to the reward for information leading to the suspect, which combined with other rewards totals $91,000. Dugan says the suspect may have snuck up on Felton and conceded there might be more than one person involved.
Police have also ordered residents to keep their porch lights on between the hours of 6pm and 6am, since the killer strikes under the cover of darkness. Felton was volunteering at a church food bank and was shot in the back as he crossed Nebraska Avenue. Police said Felton, a construction worker, and father of three adult children, was crossing the street when a man dressed in all black came up behind him and shot him.Читайте также: Oil price edges lower on anticipated USA production rise
Police spokesman Steve Hegarty said the suspect couldn't have "gone very far, and we're talking to as many people as we can to see what they may have seen". He was armed with a large black pistol and was last seen wearing all black clothing, according to police. "Verify it's where it's supposed to be, and if it's not, we need you to call us".
Tampa Mayor Bob Buckhorn added: "This has got to stop. Maybe I need to consider moving", Street said, shaking her head.
Benjamin Mitchell became the first victim on October 9, when he was shot dead after getting off a bus in the neighborhood at night.
Police created a perimeter in Seminole Heights to search for the suspect but they fell short in their efforts.
Two days after Mitchell, 22, was shot, Monica Hoffa, 32, was gunned down.
Then on October 19, Anthony Naiboa, a 20-year-old man with autism, was killed in the southeast Seminole Heights neighborhood after taking the wrong bus home from work.
