Tampa police arrest man in string of killings

It's a cell phone, Tampa police now say helped them connect 24-year-old Howell Emanuel Donaldson III to randomly killing four people in 5 weeks.

A LinkedIn page apparently belonging to Donaldson said he graduated the Queens university in 2015 with a degree in sports management.

That resulted in his manager notifying an officer who was inside the restaurant, and Donaldson was subsequently arrested. Police have said the shootings were in the same area and could be the work of a serial killer.

Donaldson was a crew chief at the McDonald's when he was arrested. "This community begins the healing process".

Donaldson was cooperative when he spoke with police and admitted he owned the gun, but never offered a motive.

Tampa police arrested Donaldson on Tuesday at an Ybor City McDonald's after he gave a handgun in a bag to a restaurant employee.

Merkel urged to quickly seal repeat coalition deal
Merkel's conservatives have pushed to curb migrant flows and are keen to ensure that Germany sticks to a balanced budget. She said on Saturday that she would pursue a grand coalition.

"I applaud the relentless effort of Tampa Police Chief Brian Dugan, Mayor Bob Buckhorn and every law enforcement officer who has worked around the clock and over the Thanksgiving holiday". "We have to be very careful what we release because this person might be completely innocent". Each of the murders was within 10 blocks of each other in the neighborhood of southeast Seminole Heights.

Authorities said a search of Donaldson's cellphone found location data that indicated three days of recorded times and activities corresponding with the first three shootings on Oct. 9, Oct. 11 and Oct. 19.

Detective Austin Hill wrote in a police report that Donaldson told investigators "no one, except for himself had control of the Glock firearm since his purchase". Four days later, residents discovered the body of 32-year-old Monica Caridad Hoffa in a vacant lot six blocks away.

Benjamin Mitchell, 22, was shot and killed on October 9. On Nov. 14, 60-year-old Ronald Felton was killed.
