This is a very active investigation, and we are working to gather as much information as possible,” said New Bedford Police Chief Joseph Cordeiro. “We are asking anyone who may have seen or heard anything to please come forward.”

Our hearts go out to the officer and his family,” said Cordeiro. “We are all deeply saddened by this tragedy.”

The shooting of the New Bedford police officer is a reminder of the dangers that law enforcement officers face every day.

We are grateful for the brave service persons who put their lives on the line to protect our community,” said Cordeiro. “We will continue to do everything we can to keep them safe.”
