"This is an all-hands-on-deck effort with the community as well as law enforcement," Charleston Police Chief Gregory Mullen said. "When people go out they should be vigilant, they should be aware of their surroundings. And if they see anything suspicious, they should call law enforcement. No one in this community will forget this night," said Mullen, who called the killings a "hate crime."
Bengals defensive end Carlos Dunlap is from North Charleston, South Carolina and was recently there holding his annual football camp.
