NEW BEDFORD, Mass. -

Two Massachusetts men accused in the shooting of a New Bedford police officer were ordered held without bail Monday after their District Court arraignments.

The shooting occurred Friday night as authorities executed a search warrant at a Davis Street apartment known for drug sales. Detective Jonathan Lagoa was hospitalized with non-life-threatening injuries.

Police charged Nathan Manuel-Jackson, 20, of New Bedford, with armed assault with intent to murder, assault and battery with a gun and other offenses.

Thomas Scott, 34, of Mattapan, was charged as an accessory after the fact, unlawful carrying of a firearm and other offenses.

Both suspects were held for dangerousness hearings later this week.

Police said after striking a barricaded door, they were fired upon. Lagoa was hit in an area above his bullet-proof vest.

A brief standoff ended and officers took five people into custody.
