Life of course isn’t always fair, and good people do indeed die. The firefighter rushing into a burning building, or a police officer responding to a dispute, or a 76-year old woman refusing to be yet another victim at the hands of marauding thugs, yes good people die.

However this brief story is in fact a tribute to how this particular senior lived her life, unafraid and fearless.

Dorothy Hendrix was returning to her South Carolina home at about 1 a.m. when two armed men and one woman approached her attempting to rob her, however before the thugs knew what was going on, the prey suddenly became the hunter, as 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.

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

Steven Hagood, Tereba Geer and Bradacious Galloway

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.

Steven Hagood, 33, who was shot during the incident, was facing an arrest warrant in connection with murder and possession of a firearm by a convicted felon, the sheriff's office said. Tereba Geer, 26, and Bradacious Galloway, 23, were also arrested…indeed life isn’t always fair.
