v.

Terrence L. Cox, Appellant.


Appeal From Horry County
 Paula H. Thomas, Circuit Court Judge


Unpublished Opinion No.  2008-UP-528
Submitted September 2, 2008 – Filed September 11, 2008


APPEAL DISMISSED


Appellate Defender Robert M. Dudek, South Carolina Commission on Indigent Defense, of Columbia, for Appellant.

Attorney General Henry Dargan McMaster, Chief Deputy Attorney General John W. McIntosh, and Assistant Deputy Attorney General Donald J. Zelenka, all of Columbia; and Solicitor John Gregory Hembree, of Conway, for Respondent.

PER CURIAM:  Cox was tried and convicted of murder, armed robbery, and four counts of assault and battery with intent to kill.  On appeal, Cox’s counsel argues the trial court erred by refusing to admit evidence regarding the frequency of shootings in the neighborhood where the crimes occurred.  Cox also filed a pro se brief.  After a thorough review of the record and briefs pursuant to Anders v. California, 386 U.S. 738 (1967) and State v. Williams, 305 S.C. 116, 406 S.E.2d 357 (1991), we dismiss the appeal and grant counsel’s motion to be relieved.[1]

APPEAL DISMISSED.

ANDERSON, WILLIAMS, and KONDUROS, JJ., concur.


[1] We decide this case without oral argument pursuant to Rule 215, SCACR.
