Several schools in Hillsborough County were on a lock-in on Tuesday morning after another person was killed overnight in Seminole Heights, according to school officials.
As a precaution, officials said, the following schools were placed in a lock-in: Edison Elementary, Seminole Heights Elementary, Lomax Elementary, Lockhart Elementary, Young Middle, Ferrell Middle, Memorial Middle, and Hillsborough High. Later Tuesday morning, officials lifted the lock-in for all schools except Edison Elementary.
Security personnel at the schools are in communication with Tampa police throughout the day as the investigation continues in Seminole Heights.
Another fatal shooting unfolded in the early-morning hours on Tuesday, claiming the life of 60-year-old Ronald Felton. The latest shooting took place within blocks of three deadly shootings that occurred in October, and police believe they are related. Those cases remain unsolved.
During a lock-in, access to the campus is tightly controlled, officials said. Students can still be dropped off, but no outdoor activities will take place.
This is a developing story.
