Yarmouth officer fatally shot while serving warrant for firearms violations

Boston 25 News

A Cape Cod police officer was fatally shot Thursday afternoon while serving a warrant in the village of Marstons Mills in Barnstable.

Yarmouth Police Officer Sean Gannon, 32, and his K-9, Nero, were part of a team of officers serving a warrant on a number of firearms violations at a home on Blueberry Lane when the suspect shot the officer in the head, fatally wounding him.  

“Sean was a wonderful, wonderful young man,” Yarmouth Police Chief Frank Frederickson said. “I’m not just saying that. He, just, the sky was the limit.”

Nero was also wounded, and a source tells Boston 25 News the K-9 is still alive and is being treated at a veterinary hospital.

Dozens of law enforcement officials raced to the scene after the shooting and immediately established a perimeter around the home.

The suspect, who was identified as 29-year-old Thomas Latanowich, of Somerville, was allegedly hiding in the attic when the shooting occurred and then barricaded himself inside for more than an hour before he was arrested.

Dozens of heavily armed officers filled the neighborhood, which was locked down because of the situation.

As the incident was unfolding, Boston 25 News spoke to neighbors in the community who said they were shocked and saddened to learn what took place.

“I don’t know how someone could do this,” Mikayla Lucyano said. “I don’t know how this could even happen.”

State Rep. Tim Whelan, a former Massachusetts State Police trooper, spoke about Gannon, who knew him personally.

“Sean Gannon was a man of honor. A hard worker,” he said. “His reputation was absolutely impeccable. The world is a lesser place without him in it. This is going to hurt. This is going to hurt for a lot of us.”

More details about what took place at the home should be released at Latanowich’s murder arraignment on Friday.

    “on a number of firearms violations ”

    thats a pretty open ended statement , what violations? if it comes to knowledge that they wanted to arrest him for legally owned equipment ie.. 30 round magazines , bumpstock etc bullshit , theres way more to this story thats purposely not being told to the public.

    was this raid constitutional ? was this mans rights being infringed ? what does the warrant really say?
    seems to me that he must have ……”Feared for his life”

    all the right questions.

    unfortunately i think we’ll see more of this on the horizon.

    This is so tragic.
    Tragic that a cop would come for your guns.

    The part where he got his head blown open is actually a logical conclusion.

    Well your “wonderful young man” should have read the Bill of Rights before he decided to take people’s guns. Thomas Latanowich, of Somerville is America’s latest hero because he did what’s necessary for the future of our country.

    And regardless of what your boss tells you to do, the rest of you stinking pig bastards better have a good, hard look at what Americans know as the law of the land (the Bill of Rights) before you try to seize anything, or anybody.

    Like I said a few days ago, it’s just a matter of knocking on the wrong door. We’re NOT all brainwashed by the TV.

    what part of ‘don’t tread on me’ don’t you understand?’

    Well…I guess if your knock on someone’s door and serve them.

    It better be pizza delivery.

    Otherwise odds are…

    UR gonna get shot.

    Uh… I ordered a double pepperoni with mushroom….olives and sausage.

    And and an order of hot spicy wings.

    Yeah…know…

    I think I’ve figured out who the most dangerous people are in this world.

    Old people that are hungry and haven’t had a bowel movement in a few days.

    Talking about cranky.
