Tampa - Police arrested a man late on Tuesday and said they will charge him with murder in a string of killings that have terrorised a neighbourhood of Tampa.

Tampa Police Chief Brian Dugan announced at a news conference that Howell Emanuel Donaldson, 24, would be charged with four counts of first degree murder.

Police detained Donaldson earlier on Tuesday after a tip that he had a gun at a McDonald's restaurant.

Four people have been killed in the Seminole Heights neighbourhood of Tampa since October 9. Police have said the shootings were in the same area and could be the work of a serial killer.

Dugan said the department had received more than 5 000 tips. He thanked those who called in the tip that led to Donaldson's arrest. No further information was provided about Donaldson.
