Slain Pace FB Player Has Funeral On Birthday

((HT: MyFoxBoston))

At least 1,000 people are expected at the funeral of Pace University football player DJ Henry, including Massachusetts Senator Scott Brown and DJ's Pace University football teammates. DJ's father says he's looking forward to the service.

Henry was killed two weeks ago when police officers fired at his car outside a bar in the town of Thornwood, New York, near the school itself. Police say they were forced to shoot after DJ drove his car at officers. But witnesses have said Henry was simply trying to move his car out of a fire lane and was no threat.

The Henry family questions the use of deadly force and how he was treated after he was shot. A thorough investigation is underway.

Family attorney Michael Sussman is still on a bit of a rampage here...
