NORTH CHARLESTON, SC (WCSC) -

Several groups are calling for a cease fire following a drive-by shooting that left a woman dead Sunday in North Charleston.

The Grass Roots Committee and Operation Chill Out My Life Matters held a press conference Monday at a Ashley Phosphate Road gas station where 36-year-old Kedena Brown stopped after she was wounded Saturday morning.

North Charleston police say Brown's car looked like one of two vehicles involved in a Sunday morning shootout and believe Brown was an unintended victim of the shooting.

She died hours after the shooting on Sunday afternoon.

The shooting was one of three in the last few days and investigators are trying to determine whether they are related.

The Sunday morning shootout began in the area of Lawrence Street and Constitution Avenue.

Then on Tuesday night, shots were fired at a home on Crestline Drive.

Early Wednesday morning, police say shots were fired into two homes on Suffolk Street, where witnesses reported hearing as many as 20 shots.

That shooting was less than a mile from Sunday's shootout.
