"The sky was the limit for him".

Latanowich, who previously lived in West Yarmouth, had well over 100 criminal charges in MA before Thursday's arrest. "Our faculty and staff are privileged to have had a role in preparing Officer Gannon for his service-focused career that tragically came to an end yesterday".

A police officer was shot and killed Thursday afternoon while serving a warrant in the Cape Cod town of Barnstable, Massachusetts. He was taken to the hospital, but did not survive.

Gannon's K-9 Nero was also shot and is now in recovery. Nero was shot in the side of the face and will undergo surgery on Friday, WCVB reported. Flags are also flying at half-staff in his honor.

"I'm just disgusted with what was dealt to officer Gannon", Yarmouth Police Chief Frank Frederickson said during a press conference Thursday night at the department's headquarters. We're going to miss him terribly. He previously was a police officer at Stonehill College.

Tom Latanowich, 2-9, of Somerville, Mass., will likely be charged with murder, police stated.

Latanowich entered the court with his head down.

"All are welcome and urged to attend as we express of love for Officer Gannon and his family as we grieve together as one", the Yarmouth Police Department wrote on its Facebook page.

Suspect Todd Latanowich, 29, of Somerville, Mass., has an prolonged jail report, Yarmouth police talked about.

Gannon was attempting to serve the suspect a warrant when he was shot, and was apparently searching the home's attic to find the suspect when it happened, according to News 7 Boston.

Latanowich was arrested after a long standoff with police at the home.
