A 76-year-old woman has been killed in a shootout outside her Anderson County home.

Coroner Greg Shore says Dorothy Hendrix died outside her home at about 1 a.m. Saturday.

Authorities say a neighbor reported gunshots at the home. When deputies arrived, they found Hendrix dead and a man who had been shot in the stomach.

Shore says Hendrix had shot the man, who was taken to a hospital. Two other men left in a car, which was found abandoned at a nearby intersection.

Authorities have not identified any of the men or discussed a motive. An autopsy was scheduled for Sunday.
