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 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.
