Another suspicious death in Tampa's Seminole Heights

Another suspicious death in Tampa's Seminole Heights”

The third victim in a string of killings in Seminole Heights was a 20-year-old man shot dead after he got off the No. 9 bus, interim Police Chief Brian Dugan said Friday.

"You can imagine the frustration of these officers to hear gunshots and not be able to find this person", Dugan said.

"But it was too late", Dugan said. He was dead when officers arrived.

It appears that Naiboa had taken the wrong bus to the neighborhood and was walking north to another bus stop when he was shot, Dugan said.

On Friday morning, Dugan urged Seminole Heights residents to review video the police department released on October 13.

"He should not have been in this neighborhood", Dugan said of Naiboa.

Minutes later, officers found the body of Anthony Naiboa, 20.

The shooting Thursday occurred a few hundred feet from the October 9 murder of Benjamin Edward Mitchell, 22.

Naiboa is autistic and had taken a city bus home from work.

Investigators are searching for a person who was seen in surveillance video near the area the night that Mitchell was killed. "Do not assume this is a white person, do not assume it's a black person and do not assume it's a male". The body of Monica Hoffa was discovered on October 13 a few blocks away in a vacant lot on East New Orleans Avenue. Police believe she died October 11.

Police say the three murder victims' bodies were found in the last ten days, all within one mile of each other. He had no criminal record, police said.

"We still have no leads, we have no motive", he said.

Mitchell's parents were still grappling Friday with their loss along with the news that someone else's son had been killed and that the suspect was still on the loose, Dugan said. He also recommended residents to turn on their porch lights and to stay in groups outside.

"Do cookouts, walk your dog", he said. "I'm convinced we are going to catch this person".

In the wake of the shootings, police said they have "blanketed the area" with officers and sent alerts to residents in the area via Alert Tampa.

"We are treating it as though they are related, but it is still early in the investigation", Dugan said at a news conference Thursday night.

"This is, you know, very frustrating", Dugan said. And now, we have someone who is terrorizing the neighborhood. The person, seen walking alone, is wearing long trousers, a long jacket and a hood and was spotted on the video down the street near where the shooting happened and around the time of the shooting.
