A Texas mother shot a man who tried to steal her SUV while her two toddlers were still inside the vehicle.
It happened Wednesday night in Dallas.
“It happened so fast,” she said. “Not even five minutes, not even five minutes. It happened so fast!”
The mother had stepped inside the gas station when a man climbed into the driver’s seat and tried to drive away, according to police.
The woman jumped back into the vehicle and ordered the man to stop the car, police said.
“I jumped in the back seat,” she said. “I seen my two babies still back there. I’m asking the man ‘hey, my kids are back here. Stop! Pull over! Pull over! He’s not even acknowledging anything about my kids.”
“When I see that he’s not trying to stop he kept hitting the gas I went toward my glove compartment and grabbed my gun and I fired at him from the side,” she 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, according to police.
