DALLAS -- A mother of two said she was pumping gas just after 10 p.m. Wednesday night in southern Dallas, when a man jumped in her car and tried to drive away with her two kids inside.
Instead of hesitating, Michelle Booker-Hicks told FOX 4 in Dallas that she did what she had to in order to save her kids.
"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 my glove compartment and that's when I fired at him once I got the gun from my glove compartment," she said.
Booker-Hicks shot the man in the face causing him to drive the car off the road and crash. The suspect was arrested and identified as 36-year-old Ricky Wright. He will likely face charges for kidnapping and the unauthorized use of a motor vehicle or carjacking, according to Fox 4.

I lock my doors even when I’m pumping gas. But I live in Los Angeles, so...
It worked but another reason off body carry is not a smart idea.
Beg for his life like the weasel he is.
On a tragic note, the carjacker survived.
Good result, but now we get to pay for his medical care, trial and jail time.
Hope she keeps her weapon on her person from now on. Glad everything turned out ok though next time go for slide lock

Amazing poise by Mom!
1 - Jumping in the car in time.
2 - Telling perp to stop w kids in the car.
3 - Reaching the gun from the back seat.
4 - Firing and hitting her target.
He should be easy to recognize. He would the one without a face.
Yes. She acted boldly and lucked out. She could have easily just provided the criminal a gun.
“Booker-Hicks shot the man in the face causing him to drive the car off the road and crash. “
Yeah, I bet. If she’d done it correctly it would have caused him to assume room temperature.
Ricky Wright is now Ricky Wrong.
I’m having trouble getting my head around the logistics of this. So you were pumping gas, a man jumps in the car in an attempt to steal it and your kids, but you’re able to get into the back seat before he drives off? Then go over the backseat and into the glove compartment, get the gun out and shoot him with it? Hmm . . .
On the other hand, with half his face blown off any plans for a career as a television urinalist are blown as well.
Anyone who puts kids in danger needs to die. No trial. No protests. Just dead.
I do find it odd when people refer to human excrement as "gentlemen".
