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. Anyone robbing anyone can expect to be shot. People are tired of someone taking things from them. If he did not have the money he needed then he should have worked for it. Even if he just mowed lawns or cleaned pools to make money that would be better than stealing from others.

  2. Not fair? I would think that if you had raised him properly he wouldn’t have tried to ROB a man trying to make a living – Was your son crippled or disabled that may caused him to do this??

  3. The thug wasn’t robbing the Pizza Hut to support his kids…He was robbing the place for money so he can buy drugs. And if his mother raise in church, he wouldn’t be on his way to hell!
