Grand jury clears cops of criminal behavior in student's death

On Monday, a Westchester County, NY Grand Jury cleared two police officers of criminal responsibility in the death of Danroy Henry Jr., a 20 year-old Pace University football star.

Danroy Henry, known as D.J., was shot and killed by cops in October while driving his car outside a Thornwood bar. Danroy's parents, Danroy Sr. and Angella Henry, described their son's case to T.J. Holmes on February 9, and said their son was wrongfully killed. Danroy Sr. and Angella Henry maintain their claim following Monday's verdict but say they aren't surprised the officers were cleared. Following Monday's verdict, the U.S. Department of Justice announced it would step in to review the case.

Danroy Sr. and Angella Henry speak to T.J. Holmes about their son's case on American Morning.

    Excellent interview with the parents of the victim! They gave a very intelligent response to a very sad incident.
