    For Danroy Henry's family members, his death has turned their lives upside down. John Noel brings us reactions from friends and family. (Published Monday, Nov. 22, 2010)

    Dozens of people called for justice as they marched and prayed for a Pace University football player shot and killed in his car by New York police.

    Supporters of Danroy Henry and six players who came to his aid during the altercation outside a bar last month marched around the Westchester County Courthouse on Sunday.

    They also attended a service at Bethel Baptist Church in White Plains, where Henry's grandfather, Wayne Dozier, said "justice has to be done.''

    Henry's family is skeptical the district attorney can fairly investigate police departments that work with her.

    Police say Henry sped away and hit two officers after a third officer knocked on his car window. Witnesses dispute that account.

    A Westchester County grand jury investigation is under way.
