Settlement in fatal shooting of Pace U. student

NEW YORK (AP) — The family of Danroy Henry Jr., a college football player who was fatally shot by police in suburban New York, has reached a $6 million settlement with the village of Pleasantville and the officer who shot him.

Michael Sussman, an attorney for the Henry family, announced the settlement Monday.

The Pace University student from Easton, Massachusetts, was shot in his car as he drove through a parking lot away from a disturbance that spilled out of a bar on Homecoming Day.

Aaron Hess, the officer who shot him, was cleared by a grand jury and the U.S. Attorney's office declined to bring federal civil rights charges.

The family is still suing the town of Mount Pleasant and town officers who they say failed to appropriately respond to Henry's gunshot wounds.
