TARRYTOWN, N.Y. (AP) - The family of a New York college student killed by a policeman says the first official account of the shooting was purposely misleading.
Their lawyer says a press release issued the day after the 2010 shooting of Danroy Henry Jr. was tailored to protect police officers and served as a faulty ``script'' for the investigation.
The release was issued by the Mount Pleasant police chief. The Associated Press left messages for him and his attorney.
Henry was a 20-year-old Pace University student from Easton, Mass. He was driving away from a disturbance outside a suburban Thornwood, N.Y., bar in October 2010.
The officer who shot him said Henry was driving toward him and wouldn't stop.
That officer was cleared by a grand jury but is among several officers and jurisdictions being sued.
