Fear of a serial killer stalking a Tampa neighborhood has reignited after another fatal shooting. An intense manhunt is underway by the police and the FBI and there are witnesses to this latest shooting.
Tampa police are connecting Tuesday morning’s deadly Seminole Heights shooting to a string of murders believed to be carried out by a serial killer.
The latest victim was shot near a memorial honoring three people who were killed within days of one another in the neighborhood in October.
Police say today’s victim is identified as 60-year-old Ronald Felton who was crossing a street when someone came up from behind and shot him in the back.

Felton, a father of three adult children, was on his way to feed the homeless at New Seasons Apostolic church when he was shot, according to his brother.
The suspect is described as a black male about 6 feet tall, thin build and light complexion, dressed in black, wearing a baseball cap and carrying a large pistol. Police are urging residents to stay indoors.
