Woman Attacked By 3 Thugs They May Have Won, Till She Took Matters Into Her Own Hands

A 76-year-old woman was killed in a shootout with attempted robbers outside her Anderson County, S.C., home early Saturday morning.

“She fought. She was a fighter. She shot him,” the victim’s brother, Ronnie Lollis, told local NBC affiliate WYFF News Channel 4.

Dorothy Hendrix returned home at about 1 a.m. when two armed men and one woman approached her attempting to rob her, coroner Greg Shore said. He said Hendrix pulled out a gun and fired at the suspects, and one of them returned fire, hitting her twice. One neighbor reported the gunshots to police.

Hendrix, known as “Dot” to friends and family, managed to shoot one of the intruders in the stomach before she died at the scene. The other two suspects ran off.

The wounded suspect was taken to the hospital for surgery, Shore said. The Anderson County Sheriff’s Office said they will release more details after they interview him.
