The mayor of Tampa told police officers looking for a suspect in three fatal and apparently random shootings in one neighborhood to hunt him down and “bring his head to me.”

News outlets report that Tampa Mayor Bob Buckhorn addressed the officers Wednesday afternoon during a roll call in the Seminole Heights neighborhood where two men and one woman have been gunned down while walking since Oct. 9.

“Bring his head to me, all right?” Buckhorn said. “Let’s go get it done.”

All three victims, who didn’t know each other, rode the bus and were alone when they were shot on the street, authorities said. None of the victims was robbed.

Tampa Police Chief Brian Dugan promised nervous parents that the community will be safe for Halloween next week, the Sun Sentinel reports.

“I’m gonna go out there,” he said. “I’ll be personally on patrol, and you know what? If somebody wants to walk with me, they can walk with me. I’ll walk with their family and get candy with them. I might even take some of their candy.”
