A Westchester County grand jury has cleared two police officers in the shooting death of Pace University student Danroy (DJ) Henry at a Thornwood shopping center last October.

The bombshell announcement came Monday afternoon in a statement by District Attorney Janet DiFiore. DiFiore said since the grand jury convened on Jan. 10, it heard testimony from 85 witnesses, including 46 civilians, most of whom are Pace students who were at the Thornwood Town Center in the early morning hours of Oct. 17 when Henry was shot.

“After due deliberation on the evidence presented in this matter, the grand jury found that there was no reasonable cause to vote an indictment,” DiFiore said in the statement. “I would like to thank the 23 citizens of this county who comprised the grand jury for their service, for the time and effort they devoted to this investigation and for the careful manner in which they discharged their solemn duty.”
