K-9 Nero was shot along with his partner, Yarmouth Officer Sean Gannon, while serving a warrant last Thursday. Gannon was killed and Nero was badly injured. 

The suspect, 29-year-old Thomas Latanowich of Somerville, was allegedly hiding in the attic when the shooting occurred.

A law enforcement source told Boston 25 News a bullet went through Nero's cheek and into his shoulder. He underwent emergency surgery and has been receiving around-the-clock care since. 

Shortly after midnight Sunday, Yarmouth Police posted an update about Nero, showing the pup on a walk.

"FIGHTING back and standing STRONG!" said the police department. 

The Cape Cod Veterinary Specialists in Buzzards Bay are caring for Nero

The Boston Bruins Foundation will be donating their 50/50 raffle proceeds Saturday night to the family of Yarmouth Police Officer Sean Gannon. Gannon was shot and killed in Barnstable Thursday night while serving a warrant for firearms violations.

Gannon was allegedly shot by 29-year-old Thomas Latanowich, who police say was hiding in the attic when the shooting occurred and barricaded himself for an hour before being arrested. The Bruins will play the Toronto Maple Leafs in Game 2 of the first round of the Stanley Cup playoffs Saturday night. The game will start at 8 p.m., an hour after a vigil being held to remember Gannon.

Patriots wide receiver Julian Edelman tweeted his support for the move, encouraging Bruins fans to jump in on the action Saturday night.

Fans can follow along with the updated pot total during the game at this link, and can buy tickets for the raffle to support Gannon's family both in the arena and online until the start of the third period.
