    This is police dashboard camera video that captured the aftermath of the shooting of Danroy Henry, the Pace University football player shot by a police officer in 2010. The video shows Henry laid in the street for more than three minutes before he was attended by paramedics.

    Henry, a Pace University student, was driving away from a disturbance outside a bar. 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 being sued. On Thursday, the family lawyer said Pleasantville Officer Kevin Gilmartin and Mount Pleasant Officer Ronald Gagnon were also being sued for intentionally or recklessly failing to help Henry.
