Police investigate 3rd suspicious death in Florida community
TAMPA, Fla. (AP) —
Police believe the fatal shooting of a 20-year-old autistic man who took the wrong bus home from work is linked to two other suspicious deaths in a Florida neighborhood.
The deaths, which took place in the same neighborhood over the past 10 days, prompted Tampa police to warn residents in the Seminole Heights neighborhood not to walk alone at night.
"We have someone terrorizing the neighborhood," Interim Tampa police Chief Brian Dugan said during a Friday news conference. He says the three victims have no ties.
Police officers patrolling the neighborhood Thursday night heard a possible gunshot and found Anthony Taino Naiboa on the sidewalk about 100 yards (91 meters) from where another victim was found last week.
The other victims are a 32-year-old woman and a 22-year-old man.
