Danroy Henry – RIP
They were high school buddies bantering in a car after competing against each other in a college homecoming game.
Pace University football player Danroy “D.J.” Henry was in the driver’s seat with Brandon Cox by his side, joking about their futures, as they waited in a fire lane for another friend outside Finnegan’s Grill.
A police officer tapped on the windshield, and Henry drove off. Seconds later, after the car struck two officers, police opened fire, leaving Henry dead and Cox wounded.
About 200 friends and family members attended a vigil for Danroy Henry, the slain Pace University student, in his hometown of North Easton, Mass. Oct. 18, 2010. (Seth Harrison/The Journal New)
