A 29-year-old man with a lengthy criminal record will face a murder charge this morning for fatally shooting a Yarmouth police officer on Thursday afternoon.
State police say 32-year-old Sean Gannon was shot Thursday afternoon in Barnstable on Cape Cod. He was in a group of fellow officers from Yarmouth, Bourne and state police serving a warrant in Marstons Mills.
Officials have not yet said what happened during the warrant serving, but it ended with Gannon being shot. He was taken to Cape Cod Hospital, where he later died.
