Four people were killed in a series of shootings in North Charleston over the weekend.

North Charleston Police Chief Reggie Burgess has repeatedly marched through the streets calling for an end to the violence.

Residents will have a chance to express their concerns Wednesday during a 'Coffee with a Cop' event at the McDonald's located at 5950 Rivers Ave.

According to a news release, adults will receive a free small coffee and children will receive a free cone or cookie from 4 p.m. to 6 p.m.
