Hundreds Mourn Danroy Henry

This article is more than 9 years old.

Hundreds of mourners have gathered in Boston to remember a Pace University football player who was shot by police.

Childhood pictures of Danroy "D.J." Henry of Easton flashed on a screen as friends, family and Pace students filled about 1,700 seats in a ballroom at the Boston Convention & Exhibition Center.

Police have said Danroy "D.J." Henry was shot outside a Thornwood, N.Y., bar Oct. 17 after he drove off and hit two officers.

But witnesses have said Henry was trying to move from a fire lane as police responded to a disturbance and wasn't a threat.

Earlier Friday, a lawyer for Henry's family said a ballistics expert he hired had determined a police officer was not in harm's way when he fired the first shot.
