Latanowich has a long history of run-ins with law enforcement, linked to 111 prior criminal charges, the Yarmouth Police Department said in a Facebook post.

Gannon graduated from the MBTA Municipal Police Academy in Quincy and held a master's degree in emergency management from the Massachusetts Maritime Academy and a bachelor of science from Westfield State University. Support for Gannon's family and the Yarmouth Police Department flooded in online, especially from police and fire departments throughout New England.

The officer was with the Yarmouth Police and part of the division's Okay-9 unit, WBTS reported.

"Sean was a wonderful, wonderful young man", Yarmouth Police Chief Frank Frederickson said, according to WCVB.

"There are not words to describe the anguish and the heartbreak that strikes a family, a community and our Commonwealth during these unimaginable moments", Baker said. "We refer to him as the Tom Brady of the Yarmouth Police Department and he's gone. Our department is going to miss him terribly".
