The 32-year-old Gannon was shot and killed last Thursday while he and other officers were serving an arrest warrant at a home in Barnstable.

Gannon, who was married, was an 8-year veteran of the department.

He was remembered in his obituary for his "high moral integrity, infectious humor, and collaborative work with colleagues."

Gannon's dog, Nero, also was shot but underwent surgery and is recovering.
