The alleged Tampa serial killer has been arrested and charged with murdering four people.

Howell Donaldson was arrested after police received a tip from a McDonald’s staff member Tuesday afternoon about a man with a gun and brought him in for questioning.

The 24-year-old was brought in after a gun was recovered from the scene, according to WFLA.

Donaldson, who goes by Trai because it is a family name, has been charged with four counts of first degree murder. He is accused of fatally shooting Benjamin Mitchell, Monica Hoffa, Anthony Naiboa and Ronald Felton.

Gail Rogers works at the McDonald’s with Donaldson, and told The Tampa Bay Times Donaldson walked into the restaurant in his work uniform and asked the manager to hold his loaded 9mm handgun.

He then walked to Amscot to get a payday loan, and the manager had Rogers alert a female officer in the McDonald’s about what had just happened. That officer then called for backup.

Rogers told the Times that Donaldson had worked at that McDonald’s for about four months, and said he arrived at work driving a red Ford Mustang. The car is believed to belong to his father.

Donaldson was born in North Carolina but spent most of his life in Tampa before going to play college basketball at St John’s University in New York.

On Tuesday afternoon Police Chief Brian Dugan told reporters that a man was brought in for questioning in connection with the murders. The killings started 51 days ago in the city’s Seminole Height’s neighborhood.
