Police want residents to stay inside their homes.

This comes just weeks after three people were shot and killed over a 10-day span in Seminole Heights.

It's not known if Tuesday's homicide is connected to the three October murders, but a Tampa police spokesman told NBC News it will be treated that way until it is ruled out.

Police have been heavily patrolling the area since the investigations began.

During an 8 a.m. press briefing, Tampa Police Chief Brian Dugan said that Felton was crossing the street to meet someone when he was attacked from behind.


A makeshift memorial for shooting victim Anthony Naiboa sits on a sidewalk in the Seminole Heights section of Tampa. All three victims, 22-year-old Benjamin Mitchell, 32-year-old Monica Hoffa and 20-year-old Anthony Naiboa were found within one mile of each other.

Monica Hoffa, 32, was found dead in a vacant lot on October 13 after being shot. She was shot and killed. Mitchell was shot and later died of the injuries he sustained. No further details were immediately released, including whether the person was shot. They have released surveillance videos of a hooded suspect taken after two of the shootings.

Currently, authorities are offering a $41,000 reward for anyone who has information leading to the arrest of a suspect.

Anyone with information regarding the suspect (s) is asked to call Crime Stoppers at 1-800-873-8477, report anonymously online or send a tip using the P3 Tips Mobile application.
