Wake and Funeral Set for Fallen Yarmouth Police Officer

Funeral arrangements have been set for a police officer in Yarmouth, Massachusetts whom police say was shot to death last week by a career criminal who had violated his probation.

Sean Gannon, 32, was shot in the head and killed Thursday, April 12 while attempting to serve a warrant on a 29-year-old man at a home in Marstons Mills.

He had served as police officer in Yarmouth for eight years, most of that time working with a police dog. The dog was also shot in the incident, but is recovering.
