Photos of cop injured in Pace student shooting released

The father of a Pace University student who was fatally shot by police is speaking out about how the officers handled the situation, just as photos of one of the officers allegedly injured in the crash are released.

Photos of injured officer Aaron Hess were released yesterday. Hess' attorney says that he has undergone surgery and received multiple stitches for a dislocated kneecap after Pace student Danroy Henry allegedly mowed him down with his car outside Finnegan's Grill in Thornwood on Oct. 17.

Henry's father, Danroy Henry, Sr., says that the photos and new detailed information only further the notion that the officers may have acted wrecklessly, and that there was a certain amount of chaos on the scene at the time.According to published reports, Hess claims his life was in danger and couldn't avoid Henry's car when he fired four rounds into the windshield.

Henry's father now believes that Hess stepped in front of his son's vehicle, rather than his son aiming his car at the officer.
