There was a special hometown tribute held in Easton, Massachusetts Sunday for a Pace University student who was shot and killed by police in Westchester County.

Friends and family of Danroy "DJ" Henry released dozens of balloons on Sunday, the six-month anniversary of his death.

Henry was killed October 17 in Thornwood, Westchester County, by an officer who shot at Henry's car.

Authorities say Henry was trying to drive away from a brawl and struck the officer, who was later cleared of wrongdoing.

The Justice Department is still investigating the case.
