In The News: Armed Mom Saves Kids – Stops Criminal Carjacker

Armed Mom, Michelle Booker-Hicks was paying for her gas at a Dallas gas station on the night of July 4th when a man jumped in her car. Her two children, ages 2 and 4, were in the back seat.

Michelle sprung into action, jumping in the back seat and quickly grabbing her gun out of the glove box. She shot the man in the face, which caused him to drive off the road and crash into a fence.

“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,” she recalled. “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.”

The carjacker, identified as Ricky Wright, was arrested and taken to the hospital for treatment.

Neither Michelle nor her children were hurt.
