4th person shot dead in Tampa neighborhood

At approximately 5 a.m. on Tuesday, police patrolling the area received a call of shots fired and were at the scene within a minute, police said.

A man's body was found early Tuesday in the historic Seminole Heights neighborhood of Tampa, Florida, blocks away from where three people were recently slain, the Tampa Police Department said.

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

Police are investigating what they are calling a suspicious death.
