Never underestimate the mama bear instinct of a woman.
A woman stopped at a Dallas gas station Wednesday night, hopped out of the SUV that had her two children inside to go into the convenience store. That’s allegedly when Rickey Wright tried to drive away with the vehicle, kids and all.
The mom was having none of it, jumped into the back seat and tried to convince the man to let the children out. He refused and she managed to reach her glove box, take out a gun and shoot Wright in the head. The damage could’ve been worse but the unidentified woman stressed “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.”
The suspect crashed into a light pole after being shot and that ended that. Wright is recovering and is charged in the case. He had 20 prior arrests on his record.
