Tampa police say they are treating a suspicious death in Seminole Heights as related to the Seminole Heights Killer until they know otherwise

When officers arrived, they found the body of a man in the street.

Tampa police, responding to early-morning reports of gunfire, found a gunshot victim in the same Seminole Heights neighborhood where three people died in a span of 11 days last month, authorities said.

Witnesses told officers Fenton was crossing the street when he was shot and killed just a few blocks away from a memorial honoring three others killed in Seminole Heights.

Dugan described the gunman as a black male with a thin build, dressed in black and wearing a black baseball cap, and said he likely lived in the area.

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".

Television footage showed a heavy police presence at the scene of Tuesday's shooting.

After the earlier shootings, police increased patrols in the neighborhood and released surveillance videos of a hooded suspect. Forensic evidence is being collected. Nebraska Avenue is closed in both directions between Hillsborough Avenue and Osborne Avenue.
