A police officer gave a purposely misleading account of what happened the night Danroy ‘DJ’ Henry was shot and killed by a cop, all in order to provide a “script” for the investigation, the family’s lawyer said.

“And the script shows a desire to protect the police,” said attorney Michael Sussman at a press conference Thursday.  “Why?  It doesn’t take a genius to understand, he’s the police chief.”

Henry, 20, was shot and killed outside of a bar in Thornwood by a police officer who claimed the Pace University student drove into him so fast he thought Henry was trying to kill him.  Henry’s friends dispute that claim, saying that they were simply trying to go home and Henry, the driver, had pulled slowly away from the curb when Officer Beckley jumped in front of the car.
