People in one neighborhood say they are fed up with the violence happening there.
After an incident where bullets were flying earlier this week, in Charleston's west side, some say it is now time for something to be done about the recent crime.
A safety and sobriety checkpoint took place there Monday night, on Central Avenue. That is near where a shooting a Monday happened, that sent gunfire flying into a car.
That incident is the latest in a string of other recent crimes.
"It was a pretty calm area. My kids would be able to get out and play, but they've grown up now, and it's still bad," said Marilyn Russell.
The violence has sparked community meetings. Some who live in the west side, believe those meetings need to continue.
"They should have more meetings in Charleston," said James Mulins.
