NEW YORK (PIX11)—As the investigation continues into the shooting of Danroy “D.J.” Henry, the popular Pace University football player shot by police last year, a police union as bestowed the officer responsible for gunning him down with the “Officer of the Year” award.

In response to the award, the victim’s family lashed out against the Pleasantville Police Benevolent Association, saying it wasn’t that much of a surprise.

“I’m glad the world gets to see the arrogance we’ve been dealing with since Oct. 17, from the district attorney’s office all the way to the Police Benevolent Association,” said Angella Henry, Danroy Henry’s mother said in a statement Tuesday.

The US Department of Justice is still investigating the circumstances surrounding the Oct. 17 fatal shooting of Henry who was killed outside a Thornwood bar. Officers on the scene claim the student drove his car into Police Officer Aaron Hess and another officer prompting Hess to open fire.

Months later, a grand jury decided not to charge Hess or any of the other officers in the shooting.
