The New York college football player who was fatally shot after striking a Mount Pleasant (N.Y.) Police officer with a vehicle during a street brawl was handcuffed by officers following the shooting.
Danroy "DJ" Henry, 20, was handcuffed and laying on the ground for 15-20 minutes after the shooting, reports CNN.
Officers had responded to a brawl outside Finnigan's Grill in Thornwood, N.Y., according to Chief Louis Alagno of the Mount Pleasant (N.Y.) PD. Here's an excerpt of what ensued:
Officers were breaking up fights, police said, when "a vehicle parked in the fire lane" accelerated. A police officer tried to stop the vehicle, which Henry was driving, but its mirror struck the officer and the officer "ended up on the hood," said police.
