    Family and friends of a college football player killed by New York police plan a vigil marking the one-year anniversary of his death.     

    The vigil is planned for Monday evening in Easton, where Danroy "D.J.'' Henry Jr. grew up.

    The 20-year-old Pace University student was killed Oct. 17, 2010, outside a bar in Thornwood, N.Y., just north of New York City.     

    Henry was parked in a fire lane when a police officer knocked on the driver's side window. Police said Henry sped off, but his family says he moved away at parking lot speed, believing the officer was instructing him to move.     

    Henry's car hit an officer who ended up on its hood, firing through the windshield.     
    A grand jury has cleared the officer, but Henry's family is suing him.
