    College Kids shot by police out side bar

    MOUNT PLEASANT, N.Y. – A police chief whose officers were involved in the fatal shooting of Easton native Danroy Henry calls the Pace University student's death a "truly tragic situation.

    In an interview with the Globe this afternoon, Mount Pleasant Chief Louis Algano identified the officers who fired the shots that killed Henry as Pleasantville Police Officer Aaron Hess and Mount Pleasant Officer Ronald Beckley.

    I think the police were wrong here, and I think charges should be filed!

    Algano said Pleasantville Officer Hess was the first officer to notice the fight and also the first officer to try to break it up. He said Hess was in the parking lot near Henry's car when another officer knocked on the window of Henry's car. Henry's car was parked in the fire lane in front of the nightspot.
    "For unknown reasons, the operator sped away,'' Algano said today.
    Hess was swept up onto the hood of Henry's car, the chief said. As Henry allegedly drove away, a Mount Pleasant officer was hit by the driver's side mirror, Algano said


    From the same article above

    The mother was on CNN and explained that since the guys were parked in the fire lane, when the officer knocked on the window they thought that he just wanted them to move out of the fire lane. So he pulled away and an officer jumped in front of the vehicle. By the time the guy saw the officer he had already hit him, and then they shot and fired and killed the college driver.

    I don't know the whole story, But what I do know is the driver was NOT drunk, or high on anything. And was a good kid! This is such a shame!

    The outcome will be interesting, since both officers were also injured. My prayers go out to all involved.

    Was the mother there?

    I think if a police officer knocks on your car window, I would think the appropriate thing would be to roll down the window and see what he/she wanted.

    I highly doubt a police officer would "jump" infront of a moving car.

    I'll give LE the benfit of the doubt...for now

    The parents of Danroy "D.J." Henry Jr., an African-American football player at Pace University who was shot and killed nearly six years ago by a white New York police officer, have accepted a partial settlement of $6 million.

    I agree with the victims father in the article linked above - no officer was hit by a car.
