Cop who shot Danroy Henry sues store where he allegedly got alcohol

Pleasantville police officer Aaron Hess, who shot and killed Pace University football player Danroy Henry, Jr., is suing a local liquor store for allegedly providing Henry with alcohol.

Henry had driven a car at a number of officers after a fight broke out at a Thornwood bar on Oct. 17, 2010. Hess was the officer who fired the fatal shots at Henry, but not before Henry struck Hess with his car.

Henry, who was underage, was found to be drunk at the time of the incident.

The lawsuit against Briarcliff Wine and Liquors states that the store is liable for Hess' injuries for providing the alcohol to Henry that led to the incident.

Hess has been cleared of any wrongdoing by a grand jury but the U.S. Department of Justice is reviewing the case and Henry's family has filed a multimillion-dollar lawsuit against Hess and the police department.
