Donations page set up for White Center man killed while trying to stop robbery

By Tim Clifford

On July 14, about 1:15 a.m., Edward “Eddie” Grant was out on the street near the Coronado Springs Apartment Complex in White Center when he noticed a street robbery in progress and a person in trouble. According to witnesses Grant rushed across the street to help the victim and stop the robbery. Seconds later he was on the ground, shot in the chest, and both the robber and victim were gone.

Now, nearly two weeks later, a GoFundMe page (http://www.gofundme.com/z2ak29hw ) has been created with donations going towards supporting Grant’s wife and two children. As of Saturday night the page has earned 5 donations, reaching $95 of a $5,000 goal.
According to the site the page has already been shared on both Facebook and Twitter 228 times.
Grant was 51-years-old at the time of his death and was laid to rest on Saturday, July 25. His services were held at the Greater Mount Baker Missionary Baptist Church with a viewing the day before at Bonnie Watson.
