SPECIAL COVERAGE: Solemn procession brings body of fallen officer Sean Gannon to church




YARMOUTH
– A solemn procession brought the body of fallen Yarmouth K9 Officer Sean Gannon from the funeral home to St. Puis X Church in South Yarmouth Tuesday afternoon. Traffic was detoured away and those that were on the road pulled over. People lined the route, some saluting and some waving flags as the hearse passed by.

The Yarmouth and Dennis fire departments set their ladder trucks up with a large American Flag draped over Route 28 before the turn onto Station Avenue. Officer Gannon’s cruiser led the procession and numerous cruisers from all over the area lined up behind the hearse. When the procession arrived at the church there was silence other than the drone of a media helicopter overhead. An estimate of at least 5,000 officers were lined up four abreast in the street. The wake ran from 4 to 8 PM. At the family’s request, no cameras will be allowed inside the church. CWN’s John P. Carroll and Jake O’Callaghan were at the church:
