Gannon and Nero were shot Thursday while serving a warrant with other officers at a home on Blueberry Lane.

K9 officer Sean Gannon, 32, was shot and killed Thursday while serving a warrant in Marston Mills.

Gannon's K-9 partner, Nero, was wounded.

As it relates to Lantanowich, he was later arrested after an hours long standoff with police.

Authorities said Latanowich fatally shot Gannon in the head as the officer chased him into the attic of his home.

For three years, Gannon worked as a member of Stonehill College's campus police then joined Yarmouth Police in 2010.

Officer Gannon was an eight-year veteran of the Yarmouth Police Department.

The statement added that the Prince "would like to convey his appreciation" for the well-wishes he has received. However, the Duke will have to have rehabilitation care as he learns to walk again on his new hip.

Next week, thousands of mourners, including fellow police officers and first responders are expected to pay their final respects to officer Gannon.

Nero, said Xiarhos, is under around-the-clock law enforcement protection and "will remain in the care and control of the Yarmouth Police Department".

The man charged with killing a Yarmouth Police officer has an extremely long criminal history and he will be back in court Friday to face a murder charge, CBS Boston reports. "We only refer to him as 125.which stands for the number of prior criminal charges he has on his Board of Probation criminal record in MA".

Even the Boston Herald documented that police cruisers drove with their lights flashing his own body was transported from a medical facility to the health examiner's off ice.

"It's hard to measure what we prevent, but I guarantee your Sean saved somebody's life", Frederickson said. Our thoughts and prayers go out to his family, friends and to his brothers and sisters in blue.
