CHARLOTTE, N.C. (AP) – Police in Charlotte have released the name of a person shot and killed by a Pizza Hut restaurant employee during a robbery attempt.
A police statement Sunday night said the victim was 28-year-old Michael Renard Grace.
Police say a restaurant employee used his own handgun to shoot and kill one of three people trying to rob the store near I-85 early Sunday.
Detectives say the restaurant was closed and there were no customers inside.
Police say their investigation indicates three people entered the restaurant around 1:40 a.m. Sunday and were robbing it when one of the employees shot one suspect. Police say a handgun carried by the dead man was found at the scene.
The two other suspects ran away and haven’t been arrested.
