What happens when a former Pizza Hut employee in Charlotte, NC returns to the store with two buddies to rob it and is shot DRT (dead right there)? Do the misguided youth’s parents blame their son for committing an armed robbery or themselves for their failed parenting? Of course not! They blame the good guy with a gun defended himself and others in the store. WBTV has the story:
Charlotte, NC (WBTV) –It’s been a difficult week for parents Temia Hairston and Michael Grace Sr. Their son, Michael Grace Jr, was shot and killed during an attempted robbery early Sunday morning. . .
Hairston said she learned of her son’s death on social media, and only got confirmation from police after contacting them first. The grieving mother said she has been left with dozens of questions about the situation that have thus far gone unanswered.
“If there was to be a death, it was not the place of the employee at Pizza Hut. That is the place of law enforcement,” said Hairston . . .
Hairston and Grace Sr acknowledged that their son was breaking the law by robbing the business, and said they definitely don’t condone what he did.
“It was an act of desperation, but I do not believe that Michael would have hurt anyone,” said Hairston . . .
