Texas – Dallas Mother Shoots Carjacker Who Tried To Rob SUV With Her Kids Inside

The saying goes, ‘don’t mess with Texas’, but the saying might have to be enlarged to add, ‘and certainly not with a Texas mother’s children’ after it emerged that a Dallas woman shot a carjacker from the back seat when he tried to take off with her SUV which had her two young children, aged 2 and 4, inside.

The incident took place around 10 pm Wednesday evening. Dallas police declared that the mother, who didn’t want to be identified for the story, had stopped for gasoline at a Shell station on Camp Wisdom Road. As she went into the station’s convenience store to pay, the employee alerted her that someone was entering her SUV.

The woman told local press outlet KDFW-News: "I proceeded to jump in my backseat and told the gentleman to stop, to get out the car. He would not get out of the car."

"He turned around and looked at me. I reached over the armrest to get to my glove compartment and that's when I fired at him."

The man was shot in the face and crashed the SUV at the side of the road.

"I should have just emptied the whole clip but I didn't. I hope that woke him up."

The carjacker, identified as 36-year-old Ricky Wright, was transported to the hospital with a gunshot wound.

Social media cheered on the ‘Mama Bear’ who was questioned at the scene but ultimately released. Police confirmed she will not face charges.
