EASTON, Mass. — Danroy Henry Sr. wonders where his son would be and what he’d be doing if he were still alive today.

“He could be doing anything he wanted to honestly,” Henry said. “I think about: Would he have kids? Would he be an NFL player? Would he be retiring? Would he be on the sideline working? I don’t know what he’d be doing, but he had a ton of potential and I suspect that he would be realizing a lot of that right now.”

Instead, Danroy “DJ” Henry Jr., was fatally shot at age 20 when Pleasantville, New York, police officer Aaron Hess, who is white, fired four gunshots at DJ Henry’s moving vehicle. DJ Henry, a Pace University football player, was unarmed.
