From Dallas:

Michelle Booker-Hicks told FOX 4 it happened around 10 p.m. as she was paying for her gas at a Shell station along Interstate 35 near Camp Wisdom Road [in south Dallas.]

She saw a man get into the car with her 2 and 4-year-old sons in the back seat. She jumped back in too, grabbed a gun from her glove box and shot the man in the face to get him to stop.

“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.

The carjacker ran the car off the road and crashed into a fence. He was arrested and taken to the hospital for treatment.

Police identified the suspect as 36-year-old Ricky Wright. He will likely face charges for kidnapping and the unauthorized use of a motor vehicle or carjacking.

Booker-Hicks and her kids were not hurt.

She said she fired only one shot but she almost wishes she would have emptied the whole clip [magazine.]

“I’m not a killer but I do believe in defending what’s mine,” she said. “I hope that woke him up.”

From Houston:

The Houston Chronicle reports: “The would-be thief in a ski mask burst into the store in the 7000 block of McHard around 10 p.m., pulling out a gun and demanding money from the clerk behind the counter.
