New video released in Tampa murder investigation

New video released in Tampa murder investigation

The Tampa neighborhood has witnessed three killings in the past 11 days, and while investigators are hesitant to brand the murderer a "serial killer", they believe that the killings are connected.

News outlets report that Tampa Mayor Bob Buckhorn addressed the officers Wednesday afternoon during a roll call in the Seminole Heights neighborhood where two men and one woman have been gunned down while walking since October 9. It shows a person in a hooded top running away from the neighborhood within seconds of the slaying.

Police have been showing residents a video of a man who was walking in the area when the first murder occurred and are still "reviewing video to see if there is anything more we can dig out of it", Dugan said. In a pep talk to a crowd of police officers before their afternoon patrol, the mayor issued this medieval-sounding command: "Bring his head to me". "Alright? Let's go get it done!" Dugan said he will "personally be on patrol" that night. On Wednesday, Mayor Bob Buckhorn told officers, "He's not taking over these streets".

The first victim, Benjamin Mitchell, 22, was shot on October 9 while waiting for a bus near his home. Aftward, the police officers started patrolling by patrol cars, cycles and on foot.




Interim Chief Brian Dugan said during a press conference he wants to know why the individual is running.

The interim chief reiterated his commitment to finding the killer, and said he is confident that someone who knows the person in the surveillance video should be able to recognize them and help police find them.

"We're going to shine a very, very bright light on this community", Buckhorn said.

"I have tried to do that several times", he said. I'll walk with their family and get candy with them.
