YARMOUTH, Mass. – Police officers from across the country are expected to attend the funeral of a Massachusetts officer who was killed in the line of duty.
A funeral Mass for Yarmouth K-9 Officer Sean Gannon is scheduled for Wednesday morning at St. Pius X Roman Catholic church in the Cape Cod town. The Mass will be followed by a private burial for family and colleagues.
State police say K-9 units from multiple departments are expected to line the route from the church to the cemetery.
The 32-year-old Gannon was shot and killed last Thursday while he and other officers were serving an arrest warrant at a home in Barnstable.
Gannon, who was married, was an eight-year veteran of the department.
Gannon’s dog, Nero, was shot but underwent surgery and is recovering.
