Three people have been shot to death outside convenience stores in and around Charleston within a week.
All of the shooting happened at night. And police say the bullets in all three attacks were fired from the same caliber and class of weapon from more than 30 yards away.
Two of the victims were shot in the head and another was hit in the neck.
