The other two gang members are also facing murder charges.

Mse Hendrix worked as a volunteer at a bingo club and obtained a concealed carry permit after being robbed in 2011. The robbers in the earlier attack were never caught and police have not said whether the two robberies are connected. Anderson County Sheriff told reporters ‘This was not a random act. The robbery was planned, and she was specifically targeted. The trio had knowledge that Hendrix carried large sums of money home with her at night.’

Mr. Lollis said his sister had learned how to fire a gun after the earlier robbery and had a weapons permit. Lollis told reporters ‘She had been robbed right here at her house, coming out of her house. That’s what made her get her gun. I don’t understand why she wanted to keep coming back.’ Casino and bingo hall workers have been targeted in several cities. For those who enjoy bingo games in a safe environment internet bingo is probably the best option.
