Cameras donated to help solve crimes in South Carolina city

Dozens of cameras have been installed in a South Carolina city to help curb crime in the months after surveillance video helped capture a suspect in a man’s shooting death.
At least 125 cameras were donated to be set up in the East Side neighborhood in Charleston, The Post and Courier reported.
Tim Haman was shot and killed in the neighborhood in August, and police said a neighbor’s camera helped them catch a suspect six days later, according to the newspaper.
About 20 cameras were installed by late December, and another 25 were expected to be set up by the end of January, the newspaper reported.
The cameras will be registered with the Charleston Police Department, spokesman Charles Francis said.
Charleston police data shows 2019 was the second deadliest of the last ten years, The Post and Courier reported.
