You can kill the running grep with `C-c C-k'.

Also when you kill its buffer with `C-x k',
it asks you the question:

  "Buffer "*grep*" has a running process; kill it? (yes or no)"

Just say yes.

If you can't find the buffer where grep runs, use
`M-x list-processes RET' to find the ruinning process.
