Police said Ricky Wright, 36, got into Booker-Hicks' SUV Wednesday night in a gas station parking lot. When she came out, she saw a man driving away in her SUV.
According to police, Booker-Hicks shot the man once in the face and caused him to crash into a nearby telephone pole. With her 2- and 4-year-old sons in the rear seat, she leaped inside to grab the firearm she kept in the glove box.
She explained: "I told him that I needed some bullets for my gun and he told me that he was going to go get it".
"I'm not a killer or anything like that, but I do believe in defending what's mine", she added.
Booker-Hicks then ran back into the parking lot and got in the back seat of the vehicle, where her 2-year-old and 4-year-old sons were sitting, according to Fox4. However, she is also a mother of two toddlers. He faces two counts of unlawful restraint and unauthorized use of a motor vehicle.

"I should have emptied the whole clip, but I didn't".
"Court records show he has a long list of charges including assault and family violence, arson, theft, making a terroristic threat, resisting arrest, and drug charges", Fox 4 reports.
Wright was taken to a local hospital and an update on his condition wasn't immediately available.
The man sped off in Booker-Hicks' auto, but not before she was able to jump into the back seat with her children to confront the thief.
