Judge OKs Release Of Evidence In Shooting Of DJ Henry
WHITE PLAINS, N.Y. (AP) — The evidence gathered in a lawsuit over the fatal police shooting of a New York college student may soon be made public.
A federal judge ruled Thursday that witness statements and police transmissions cannot be withheld. The ruling frees lawyers to release those items and other evidence related to the 2010 death of Pace University football player Danroy Henry Jr. of Easton, Mass.
A lawyer for Henry’s parents said he plans to release some material. He says there is video but none that shows the shooting.
The 20-year-old Henry was shot and killed as he drove away from a disturbance outside a bar in Thornwood. The police officer involved said he was hit by Henry’s car.
The parents filed the lawsuit after a grand jury cleared the policeman of wrongdoing.
