DALLAS (AP) — Dallas police say a woman shot a man in the head who was trying to steal her sport utility vehicle with her two children inside.
Police say 36-year-old Ricky Wright got into the woman’s vehicle Wednesday night in a gas station parking lot. The woman jumped in the vehicle and told the suspect to stop. When he didn’t, she pulled a gun from her glove box and shot him once in the head. The vehicle then crashed into a pole.
Wright has been charged with two counts of unlawful restraint and one count of unauthorized use of a motor vehicle.
Police say Wright was hospitalized in serious but stable condition, but that the woman and children weren’t injured.
No charges have been filed against the woman.
