Michael Edwin Grant, 52, has been arrested and charged with murdering his father, 72-year-old Michael Grey Grant, on Thursday at Speedy Self Storage in Winchester, Tenn. The shooting occurred at 11:13 a.m. at 911 S. College St., while the elderly Grant sat in the cab of his 18-wheeler truck. The two men reportedly had an argument before the younger Grant allegedly shot his father with a handgun, according to the source.
The victim often parked his truck at the storage facility, according to Winchester Police Chief Ritchie C. Lewis. The younger Grant went to his mother’s house after the shooting and confessed to killing his father, the source reported. His mother called the police to tell them what had occurred and informed the dispatcher that her son would turn himself in at the police station; however, Grant was arrested en route.
The incident remains under investigation. Grant has been charged with criminal homicide and is being held at Franklin County, Tenn., Jail.
