Retired NY Cop Says Officer Was 'Aggressor' In Shooting

October 04, 2012  | 

A retired policeman says he shot at another officer in 2010 because he believed the officer was "the aggressor" in the shooting that killed a college football player from Massachusetts.

Mount Pleasant Officer Ronald Beckley did not realize he was shooting at a fellow officer, he said.

Pleasantville Officer Aaron Hess has acknowledged firing the shots that killed Pace University football player Danroy Henry Jr., of Easton, Mass., in October 2010, after police were called to a disturbance that had spilled out of a bar in Thornwood, a New York City suburb, on Homecoming Day.

Hess said Henry drove toward him in the strip mall parking lot outside the bar. He said he tried to get Henry to stop, then had to lunge onto the hood of Henry's car to avoid being run over. He said he fired through the windshield to stop the driver.
