A 60-year-old man was shot to death Tuesday morning while crossing the street in Seminole Heights, Florida, a neighborhood in central Tampa. The victim, identified as Ronald Felton, was reportedly on his way to feed the homeless at New Season Apostolic Church — less than a mile from where the incident occurred.

Calls reporting the gunshots came in around 4:51 a.m. and police immediately arrived on the scene to discover the victim's body. Although the investigation was ongoing and little information was available, Tampa Police said they were treating the murder as a possible link to three previous killings in Seminole Heights in October. 

The murders of Benjamin Mitchell, Monica Hoffa and Anthony Naiboa, all occurred within a 10-day period. Connections between the victims remained unknown, except for location and cause of death. 

“We don't know if this is related to the other shootings,” said Tampa Police Department Public Information Officer Stephen Hegarty in a Bay News 9 report Tuesday. “But we're treating it as if it is.”

Tampa Mayor Bob Buckhorn appeared in a news conference Tuesday to commend officers for their tireless efforts and reminded the public of the severity of the recent events. 

"We need to catch this killer before we have to notify one more family that their loved one is dead," Buckhorn said.

Residents of Seminole Heights were asked by police Tuesday to remain indoors as officers patrolled the area.  The killer remains at large and those with any information regarding the murders was encouraged to call Tampa Police – (813) 231-6130.
