Boston police gang unit Officer Patrick Curtin had no idea he was being shot until the leg he wedged into the front door of Requon Remy Martin’s South End apartment building began to burn, according to a police report.

Boston Municipal Court Judge James M. Stanton yesterday ordered Martin, 21, and his co-defendant Antoine Mack, 35, of Pawtucket, R.I., held without bail at the request of assistant Suffolk District Attorney Montez Haywood after they pleaded not guilty to armed assault with intent to murder, assault and battery with a dangerous weapon, and multiple firearm charges.

The suspects face a dangerousness hearing tomorrow and Martin indicated he may call witnesses and testify in his own defense, the Boston Herald reports.

Curtin and two other officers followed the duo inside the West Springfield Street building, suspecting Martin and Mack were concealing handguns by the way they allegedly grabbed at their waists when they hurried away from members of the Youth Violence Strike Force.
