Po­lice hunt house by house for killer

The Morning Journal (Lorain, OH) - - NATION+WORLD -

Tampa po­lice block­aded a neigh­bor­hood and searched with a SWAT team and dogs for a pos­si­ble serial killer Tues­day after a fourth per­son was shot dead for no ap­par­ent rea­son.

Res­i­dents of the Semi­nole Heights neigh­bor­hood re­ported hear­ing shots just be­fore 5 a.m. Tues­day. Of­fi­cers quickly moved in, and found the body of Ron­ald Fel­ton, 60, who had been walk­ing across the street when a gun­man came up be­hind him and fired, in­terim Po­lice Chief Brian Du­gan said.

“Our of­fi­cers re­sponded within sec­onds,” Du­gan said, not­ing that en­abled of­fi­cers to quickly set up a perime­ter around a roughly square-mile area. SWAT of­fi­cers as­sisted by agents from the Fed­eral Bureau of Al­co­hol, Tobacco, Firearms and Ex­plo­sives could be seen pa­trolling the streets with ri­fles as they moved through yards and banged on doors.

“I be­lieve that this per­son lives in this neigh­bor­hood,” Du­gan added as he spoke with re­porters.
