MINEOLA - Jurors heard the final radio call of a slain Nassau police officer at the trial of his alleged murderer.
Audio recordings of police transmissions were played for the jury Friday. Nassau County Police Officer Artie Lopez is heard talking to his sergeant as he and his partner chased a suspect on the Cross Island Parkway in October of 2012. Prosecutors say that the suspect was Darrell Fuller and that he had just left the scene of a car accident on Northern Boulevard.
The sergeant is heard telling Lopez and his partner to "head back." Moments later, investigators say Lopez confronted Fuller and was fatally shot.

Fuller is facing murder charges for the deaths of Lopez and motorist Raymond Facey, who investigators say was shot by Fuller during a carjacking. The trial continues Monday.
