BARNSTABLE, Mass. (WPRI) — Jury selection is expected to start Monday in the trial of the man accused of killing Yarmouth Police Sergeant Sean Gannon.
Thomas Latanowich is facing a first-degree murder charge in the shooting death of Gannon on April 12, 2018. Police reports show it happened when Gannon and his K-9 were serving an arrest warrant at a home in Barnstable.
Gannon’s K-9 partner, Nero, was also shot and wounded during the incident but has since recovered.
Earlier this year, a judge denied Latanowich’s request to move the trial off of Cape Cod where his lawyer argued he could not get a fair trial.
