By: Teresa Mull

A Texas mother was getting gas when a man jumped into her car and attempted to steal it. The woman’s two toddlers were in the backseat.

“Officers say the mom quickly jumped into the car and asked the suspect to stop,” reported. “When he refused, she pulled a gun from her glove compartment and shot the suspect in the head.”

The carjacker lost control and crashed the vehicle. He was taken to the hospital with non-life-threatening injuries and was the only person injured in the incident, reported.
