Mom Open Fires On Man Stealing Her Car With Her Kids Inside

% of readers think this story is Fact. Add your two cents.

When a vehicle thief refused to stop a mother’s SUV after she demanded he do so, she opened fire on him, shooting him in the head.  The mother’s two toddlers were still in the back of the car at the time of the attempted carjacking and kidnapping.

The incident took place at about 10 pm in Dallas, Texas outside a Shell service station in the 100 block of West Camp Wisdom Road. The mother had gone into the gas station when a man climbed into the driver’s seat and tried to drive away, according to reporting done by NBCDFW5.

The mother immediately jumped back into the car as soon as she realized a thief was driving away with her children. She allegedly ordered the man to stop the car, police said. When he refused, she pulled a gun from the glove box and shot the man, who then drove the SUV into a utility pole thanks to his new gunshot wound.

The man has been identified by police as 36-year-old Ricky Wright. He was transported to a hospital with injuries not considered life-threatening, even though he took a bullet to the head. He was charged with two counts of unlawful restraint and unauthorized use of a motor vehicle.

The mother’s quick actions could have saved the lives of her two children.  Had she not been armed, this story could have very likely come out horrifyingly different.

      Ricky Wrong. Way Wrong.

      Too bad he is now generating more public debt while watching TV and getting three squares a day.

      They get better food in prison than many old folks get at the nursing home.

      Too bad it was a grazing shot.
