July 05, 2018 - 3:18 am

A Dallas carjacker is in the hospital after being shot by a mom defending her children in the back seat.

Last night about 10pm the woman's SUV was parked at a gas station on Camp Wisdom Road near I-20.

Suddenly, a man jumps behind the wheel and starts to drive off.

But the woman also hopped in the car, grabbed her pistol from the glove box and shot the man when he refused to stop.  

The SUV crashed into a power pole. The carjacker was taken to the hospital in stable condition. The children were shaken up but not hurt.
