A man shot and killed early Tuesday just blocks from where three others were killed within days of each other could be the latest in a string of slayings police believe have been done by a serial killer.

It only took police officers one minute to arrive at North Nebraska Avenue and East McBerry Street where they found a body.

The victim, 60-year-old Ronald Felton, was crossing the street when someone came up from behind and shot him, police said.

Tampa Police Department Public Information Officer Steve Hegarty told NBC News it is not known if the death is connected to the three October murders, but said it will be treated as such until authorities can rule it out. All three rode the bus and were alone when they were shot on the street. They advise residents in the area to stay in their homes as they search for the suspect. "The suspect is described as a black male, 6' to 6'2" in height, thin build, light complexion, dressed in all black, armed with a large black pistol and was wearing a black baseball cap.

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".

"I've come up with four reasons why this person is running", Police Chief Brian Dugan said last month. Three, they heard gunshots. "I can only imagine how they are on edge right now, having a fourth murder".

On Oct. 13, Monica Hoffa, 32, was found dead in a vacant lot after being shot. The three victims, who were killed between October 9-19, didn't know each other.
