The parents of a college football player who was shot dead in his car by police announced Tuesday that they plan a $120 million lawsuit against the suburban towns whose officers were involved.
Witness accounts of the shooting have differed sharply, and a Westchester County grand jury is investigating. Police have said that Henry sped away and hit Pleasantville Officer Aaron Hess, who has acknowledged shooting at Henry through Henry's windshield. A Mount Pleasant officer also fired at the car.
Sussman has alleged that Hess committed murder, but Hess' lawyer said he was thrown onto the hood of the car by the impact and had no alternative but to shoot.
