Police shot Henry, a football player and student at Pace University, Sunday morning in Thornwood after he allegedly struck an officer with his car. Another former pupil OA, Brandon Cox, who was injured in the incident and suffered minor injuries, joined Henry.
Younger brothers and sisters still attending Henry osteoarthritis. Kyle Henry is a senior and Amber Henry is a sophomore at the school.
Oliver Ames Principal Wes Paul said news of the sudden death of Henry is both tragic and surprising.
“I think it had a fairly significant impact everyone because DJ was a tall young man,” said Paul. “The circumstances are not aligned with the memories we have of him. It is a tragic circumstance that the family is in and we need as a community to support it ”
Paul said he had not reached at the Henry family again, but he plans to do everything he can to help the situation.
“I know they are still in a mixture of a lot of turmoil and grief,” said Paul. “I will reach out when I feel the time has come. I think now they definitely need time alone. ”
Paul says that students who knew Henry or the friend of her brothers and sisters have a lot of guidance counselors, adjustment counselors and a school psychologist available to them.
For now, the focus of the school will help those who are close to the family and go through what he calls a “dark day”.
“I’ll reach out and ask if there is anything I ca do to help friends of Kyle and Amber to school here,” he said. “I do not know what we can do now.”
