Chester County, South Carolina, population 33,000, has a big city problem, gangs. They have become more violent and in November, a city councilman was shot in the head on a Chester street. Five reported gang members were charged in that fatal shooting which sparked residents to call for aggressive action.
In driving through Chester, especially during the day, it seems like the usual, sleepy rural town. But that changes at night when the gangs come out, says Lt. Johnny Neal of the Chester County Sherriff’s Department.
