Jurors in the trial of an NYPD officer accused of fatally shooting an unarmed man during a traffic dispute have now heard the cop’s 911 call — where he neglected to mention he’d just shot someone.

Officer Wayne Isaacs can be heard in the call, placed at 12:05 a.m. on July 4, 2016, telling the dispatcher he’s been attacked — as Delrawn Small bleeds to death on the sidewalk nearby.
“Oh my God!” Small’s girlfriend Zaquanna Albert — who witnessed the shooting — can be heard screaming in the background of the call, as Isaacs tells the dispatcher “it’s an emergency.”

“Call an ambulance,” Isaacs can be heard saying, after identifying himself as a member of NYPD.

He’s then transferred to EMS by the dispatcher, where he reiterates that he was assaulted.

“No, no, I’m a police officer, I was attacked,” he can be heard saying.

“How many times did [Isaacs] say on this 911 call that he discharged his firearm?” Jose Nieves asked Det. Paul Perodin after jurors heard the call for a second time.

“He didn’t,” Perodin answered.

“How many times did he say in the 911 call there was a gunshot victim on the scene?” Nieves asked. “He didn’t,” the det. responded.

Jurors also heard a second call, from a longtime friend of Small, Brian Williams, who was sitting in a nearby barber shop when the shots rang out.

Williams said Albert ran up to him and said Small “got shot.”

“Holy s–t,” Williams can be heard saying on the 911 call.

“He was lying between two cars, bloody, gasping, breathing,” Williams, a Correction Officer, testified Wednesday.

Albert can also be heard in the background of Williams’ call, screaming “why would you do that?!”

The shooting unfolded after Isaacs allegedly cut off Small as he drove his family home from a 4th of July barbecue.
