Killer knows quiet Tampa neighborhood where 4 slain

The Tampa Police Department uncovered and released new video of a person, now being called a suspect, wearing slim-fitting trousers and a hooded jacket, walking on November 14 in the area of the latest shooting.

"I've been watching the serial killer news and watching, listening, praying - and for that to happen to my brother, to be shot four times at close range, that's hard", Linda Cunningham said. He appeared in footage from the night of October 9, when Benjamin Mitchell, 22, was killed.

"We originally called him someone we wanted to talk to, then he became a person of interest, today he is a suspect", Dugan said.

Police identified the victim as 60-year-old Ronald Felton.

Dugan said the reward increased again and is now at $91,000 for anyone with information that leads to an arrest.

Chief Dugan said the department received 450 tips yesterday following Felton's murder.

The resident said she was forced to be "on lockdown" in her home as police taped off her driveway.

Ronald Felton was gunned down as he crossed the street on the way to feed the homeless at a local church. "We love him and we love the family that the came from because they raised a good man". "I repeat, were are now calling this person a suspect and we need to know who this person is". "When I spoke to her, she said if our officer had been five seconds earlier, he would have been able to stop it", he said.

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 wearing all black and a black baseball cap and armed with a large black pistol, police said.

"It is all in the probably 10-block, 15-block area", Mayor Bob Buckhorn told CNN sister network HLN.

Bryanna Fox, a criminology professor at the University of South Florida in Tampa, said it is unusual for a serial killer to use a gun.

The string of unsolved killings began October 9 with the shooting death of Mitchell.

After the earlier shootings, police released surveillance videos of a hooded suspect. A city employee found her body two days afterward in a vacant parking lot half a mile from where Mitchell died. And on October 19, Anthony Naiboa, 20, was shot after taking the wrong bus home from his new job.

Two days later, Monica Hoffa (left) was also shot after getting off a bus.

Previously, officers didn't have much to go on other than a grainy video of a person running near one of the crime scenes.
