YARMOUTH, Mass. (AP) — A police dog recovering from wounds suffered in a shooting that killed his handler has stopped by his Massachusetts police department for a visit.
Officer Sean Gannon was shot and killed April 12 while he and other officers were serving an arrest warrant at a home in Barnstable. Nero was shot in the face and neck. He was released from a veterinary hospital April 18, the same day as Gannon’s funeral.
The suspect in the case is charged with murder and mistreating or interfering with a police dog. He is being held without bail.
