New York — A grand jury said Monday that a police officer did not commit a crime when he killed a Pace University football player in a confused series of events last year, according to the the district attorney's office.

Twenty-year-old Danroy "D.J." Henry Jr. was shot by police during the early hours of October 17 outside a bar at a shopping center in the town of Thornwood, New York, according to a police statement.

"The grand jury found that there was no reasonable cause to vote an indictment," Westchester County District Attorney Janet DiFiore said in a statement.
