(AP) -- Police have sealed off a neighborhood where a fourth person has been shot to death, possibly by a serial killer.

Tampa Police say they immediately set up a perimeter Tuesday morning around the Seminole Heights neighborhood after finding the body of 60-year-old Ronald Felton.

They say Felton was crossing the street to meet someone when a gunman came up behind him and shot him.

Police say residents of the neighborhood reported hearing shots just before 5 a.m. Tuesday. 

Spokesman Steve Hegarty said detectives can't immediately say whether the shooting is related to last month's killings where three people were slain during a 10-day span.

All three were alone and had gotten off a bus when they were gunned downed at night for no apparent reason. None were robbed.

Police have been boosting patrols in the area. They have released surveillance videos of a hooded suspect after the earlier shootings.
