WSBTV reports that Harp originally told authorities that she shot Grant after he attacked her with a knife. The video tells an entirely different story.

What prompted Grant to ultimately record his murder? His mother.

“It broke my heart. It just … it’s something you don’t think when you just talked to your son,” said Geraldine Grant Bryson, Grant’s mother. She told him to take her advice and start recording on his phone when he came into any trouble. “(I told him) get the video, record it and lay the phone down,” she recalled.
