BREAKING: No Police Indictment In DJ Henry Shooting

A New York state grand jury has found there was no crime in the police killing of a college football player.

The Westchester County ((NY)) DA's office said that jurors found no "reasonable cause" for an indictment in the death of DJ Henry.

Henry's father had demanded a murder indictment against the officer who acknowledged shooting his son. The father says there "are no words to express" his disappointment. He is now calling for a federal investigation.

Henry was a football player for Pace University. He was killed back on October 17th when officers fired at his car as he drove away from a bar, and toward police as they maintain, which caused them to fire at the vehicle.

Police had been called to a disturbance outside of a bar after the Pace homecoming game.
