NORTH CHARLESTON, S.C. (AP) — North Charleston’s mayor is calling for more security cameras after a tourist from Ohio was gunned down and killed outside a hotel last month.
Mayor Keith Summey tells The Post and Courier of Charleston (http://bit.ly/1UJx4Ff) that he’s proposing an ordinance to require any new business larger than 7,000 square feet to have surveillance cameras. The city’s legal department is researching the idea
Police have said the Hyatt Place Airport/Convention Center had no camera to record who fatally shot 35-year-old Barri Shank, a banking executive visiting from the Cleveland area, around 12:30 a.m. May 30.
Reba Campbell of the S.C. Municipal Association says an ordinance to require surveillance cameras on new commercial buildings would appear to be a first in the state.
