Pizza Hut Employee Serves Up Justice, Shoots Robbery Suspect

posted on November 5, 2016

A former employee of a Pizza Hut in North Carolina took a trip back to the restaurant last week. However, this time he had a gun in his hand and robbery on his mind. The reason it didn’t pan out: A current employee was carrying his own gun for self-protection. 

Charlotte-Mecklenburg investigators are confirming that Michael Grace Jr., along with two accomplices, entered the restaurant around 1:30 a.m. on Sunday, after it was closed for the night. The three demanded money before one of the employees fired his own handgun, fatally striking Grace in the head. The other two suspects escaped and have not yet been apprehended. 

Grace’s parents have admitted their son was breaking the law, but are upset a Pizza Hut employee shot him, rather than leaving it to law enforcement to bring him to justice. Even so, the pizza franchise released a statement saying, “the security of its staff is of utmost concern.”
