Mum Has Shot Man Who Tried To Steal Her Car With Kids Inside

A mum in Texas shot a man trying to steal her car with her two young children inside, according to police.

The unnamed woman left her children, aged two and four, inside her SUV as she ran inside a Shell petrol station just after 10pm on Wednesday.

As she returned a man jumped inside her vehicle and made attempts to drive away. The mother managed to jump into the back seat.

The woman told CBS DFW that she tried to get the man, who has been identified as Rickey Wright, to stop but he refused.

She then opened her glove box, pulled out a gun, and shot Wright in the head, according to police.

The mother said: "I should have just have emptied the whole clip but I didn't. I didn't. I just wanted to give him a warning shot, that was it.

"I'm not a killer or anything like that, but I do believe in defending what's mine."

According to CBS DFW, the mother said she had just put the gun in the SUV just hours earlier after her husband helped her with reloading.

She explained: "I told him that I needed some bullets for my gun and he told me that he was going to go get it."

Wright crashed into a lamppost and was taken to the local hospital. It has been reported that he is in a serious but stable condition this morning.

And Katie Price was also victim to a carjacking when her family were left traumatised in April while they holidayed in South Africa.

The former glamour model had her cash, laptops and other personal belongings stolen by a group of 'opportunist robbers'.

Price was reportedly in South Africa filming for documentary show My Crazy Life. According to police, the family had to stop at the side the road to relieve themselves - which was when the attack took place.
