The man accused of shooting and killing Yarmouth police Sgt. Sean Gannon on April 12 was in Barnstable Superior Court today for his arraignment on a charge of murder. Thomas Latanowich, 30, had his case moved up from the district court.
According to a statement from the Cape and Islands District Attorney’s office Latanowich is facing no less than eight charges in connection with Gannon’s death.
The 32-year old officer was shot and killed as he was assisting officers in serving an arrest warrant on Latanowich at 109 Blueberry Lane in Marstons Mills for a probation violation.
Gannon's partner, K9 Nero, was also shot but survived his injuries and is now living with Gannon’s family.
