Family Sues 2 More NY Officers In Student Killing

WHITE PLAINS, N.Y. (AP) — Two more New York police officers are being sued by the parents of a college football player who was killed in his car by another officer.

The new federal lawsuit claims the officers failed to get immediate help for Danroy Henry Jr. of Easton, Mass., after he was shot in 2010.

Henry, a Pace University student, was driving away from a disturbance outside a bar. The officer who shot him said Henry was driving toward him and wouldn’t stop.

That officer was cleared by a grand jury but is being sued. On Thursday, the family lawyer said Pleasantville Officer Kevin Gilmartin and Mount Pleasant Officer Ronald Gagnon were also being sued for intentionally or recklessly failing to help Henry.

Calls to the officers at their departments were not immediately returned.
