Dan Doherty, a Curry College graduate and Manchester, N.H., police officer, was in court Thursday testifying about getting shot earlier this year.
Doherty, a member of Curry’s Class of 2008 who earned his degree in criminal justice, was shot “multiple times” after chasing down a suspect in Manchester on March 21, according to a report from WMUR.com.
Myles Webster, 23, of Litchfield, was arrested the following day and later charged with attempted murder, according to the article. Yesterday’s hearing was preliminary; the full trial is scheduled to begin in December.
“I heard the action of a gun racking,” said Doherty, Boston.com reported. “I felt excruciating pain in my shin. I had been hit and was falling backwards.”
According to an article on PoliceOne.com, Doherty received his department’s honorable service awardin February 2012. Doherty and officer Adam Beland both received the award for preventing a gas station robbery in late 2011.
