Texas Mom Shoots Man Trying To Take Car With Her Children Inside

She shot him down, BANG BANG!

Only a fool fools with a black mom

On Wednesday night, July 4, a man tried to steal a car at a southern Dallas gas station. The owner of the vehicle, Michelle Booker-Hicks, was paying for her gas when she realized the attempted theft was taking place. 

To make matters worse, her sons — a 2- and 4-year-old — were in the car!

“I proceeded to jump in my backseat and told the gentleman to stop, to get out the car," Booker-Hicks told FOX 4. "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.”

It's important to note Booker-Hicks shot the thief in the face.


What you won't do is mess with a mama's kids, OK?! 

The suspect, 36-year-old Ricky Wright, ran the car into a fence after being shot and was taken to the hospital. It's expected he'll face charges for kidnapping, unauthorized use of a motor vehicle and carjacking.

WGN TV confirmed the children in the car were not harmed. 

Overall, Booker-Hicks is about that "I ain't a killer, but don't push me!" life.

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

We stan a badass black mama.
