Mom says it wasn’t fair that her robber son was shot by his intended ‘victim

Michael Grace Jr. was died from a gunshot wound he suffered while trying to rob a Pizza Hut. Grace was shot and killed by an armed restaurant employee, and his mother is upset. Temia Hariston, Grace’s mother, believe it wasn’t fair for the robbery victims to shoot her son, the robber. “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,” Hariston told CBS News. “It was an act of desperation, but I do not believe that Michael would have hurt anyone,” she continued. “Why in the hell did this guy have a gun? This wasn’t a body shot. This was a head shot. My son was shot in the left side of his head just behind his ear. A headshot is personal.”

According to his parents, Grace was suffering financial difficulty and resorted to robbery to help provide for his own child. Grace was a former employee of the same Pizza Hut he was attempting to rob, according to Hariston.

  1. I am sorry for the mother in a very slight way, and that,s that she lost her son. But on the other hand i’m very mad at her for her thinking this thug should get away with robbing places to support his son. Get a fucken job, that money was probably for drugs anyway.It didn’t say if the robber had a gun or not, but i’m thinking he did. So if the store worker would not have shot that guy it’s a pretty good guess that the store worker would be dead. The way she sounds is like her son did nothing wrong. He has probably been robbing places for a long time.
