Final respects will be paid today for slain Yarmouth Officer Sean Gannon, killed in the line of duty.

A vigil and visitation for Officer Gannon is set for this afternoon, while a funeral Mass is scheduled for tomorrow morning. Both will take place at St. Pius X Roman Catholic church in Yarmouth. The funeral Mass will be followed by a private burial.

Officer Gannon will be taken from the Doane, Beal, and Ames Funeral Home on West Main Street in Hyannis to St. Pius X Church in South Yarmouth. That procession is expected to start around 3 p.m.

Yarmouth Police encourage residents to line the route which includes West Main Street, South Street, Lewis Bay Road, East Main Street in Hyannis, and Route 28 into South Yarmouth, North Main Street, and Station Avenue to St. Pius X Church.

Massachusetts State Police have announced Station Avenue in Yarmouth will be closed from D-Y High School to Wood Rd from 5-to-6 p.m. this afternoon to allow the police march from D-Y High to St. Pius for the police walk by for Officer Gannon. On Wednesday the same road closures will take place around 10 a.m. for the police march to St. Pius.

Those attempting to go to the church either today or tomorrow should use North Main Street to Wood Rd.

Yarmouth Police today will be holding a moment of silence for slain Officer Sean Gannon.

The YPD has asked everyone to observe the moment of silence this afternoon at 5:30.
