Hundreds turned out Saturday night in Yarmouth to attend a vigil for slain K9 Officer Sean Gannon.
They gathered at Yarmouth Police Headquarters to honor and remember Gannon, who was killed in the line of duty Thursday by a career criminal. Gannon’s family also attended the vigil and Yarmouth Police Chief Frank Frederickson spokes to them directly.
Gannon and his K9 partner, Nero, were part of a team of law enforcement officers attempting to serve an arrest warrant at a home in Marstons Mills when they were both shot. Nero is recovering from gunshot wounds to the face and neck following surgery on Friday.
Sean Gannon’s wake is set for Tuesday from 4 to 8 p.m. at St. Pius Church on Barbara Street in South Yarmouth. His funeral will be held Wednesday at 11 a.m. also at St. Pius X Church in South Yarmouth.
