Radio transmissions document anxious moments after New Bedford officer was shot

The tense moments after a police officer was wounded in New Bedford last week are captured in recordings of radio transmissions released by police today.

“Control, 244 Davis St. There are shots fired, shots fired. We need some units. Get a medic up here,” an officer says on the recording, speaking to “Control,” the dispatch center.

The officer later amends the address where the shooting occurred to 246 Davis. “Control, Control, do you copy that? We need some units,” the officer says.

Shortly after that, the officers report that the wounded officer is already en route to the hospital.

New Bedford narcotics detective Jonathan Lagoa was shot while attempting to break open the door of a Davis Street apartment at about 11:20 p.m. Friday to execute a search warrant, police said.

Nathan Manuel-Jackson, 20, allegedly began shooting from inside the apartment, but eventually agreed to remove the security bar from the door and allow officers entry. He faces several charges, including armed assault with intent to murder.

Thomas Scott, 34, of Mattapan, was also inside the apartment and was charged with being an accessory after a crime.

Lagoa, whose injuries were not life-threatening, has since been released from the hospital, police said.
