An ambulance brings an officer to the hospital after they were shot in Barnstable

Police officers from all across the region, and from as far away as Bridgewater, lined up outside the hospital to offer their respects as Gannon's body was taken from the hospital to the medical examiner's office.

A police officer on Cape Cod, Massachusetts, was shot in the head and killed Thursday while serving a warrant, and a suspect was in custody, local media reported.

The officer was brought to a local hospital and ultimately died, Boston 25 reported.

Gannon was described as "the type of person who would go out of his way, completely above and beyond, to help anyone", and was "funny, universally-liked", according to the fundraiser description.

District attorney Michael O'Keefe, right, spoke at a press conference Thursday, April 12, 2018, in Yarmouth, Mass., with Yarmouth Police Chief Frank Frederickson. "Sean was a wonderful, wonderful young man and I'm not just saying that, the sky was the limit for him". "He was a man of honor, hard worker, and his reputation was absolutely impeccable". He attended St. Mary's All Saints Catholic School in New Bedford and later Bishop Stang in Dartmouth where he played tennis.


Administrators at Bishop Stang said they will not let Sean's legacy be forgotten. "May he Rest In Peace", the school posted on Facebook.

The shooting unfolded around 3:30 p.m. while the officer, who was with two state troopers, was serving a warrant before getting shot, Fox 25 Boston reported.

The Los Angeles Police Department, one of the largest police departments in the country, tweeted its support for Gannon and his K9 partner on Friday morning.

The unidentified suspect had been barricaded in the home for hours before finally surrendering to law enforcement. Authorities talked about he shall be charged with murder.
