NEW BEDFORD, MASS. (WHDH) - An elementary school in New Bedford is giving a special tribute to a Yarmouth police sergeant who was killed in the line of duty.
Campbell Elementary School approved a plan Monday to name a playground after Sgt. Sean Gannon, who grew up in New Bedford.
The groundbreaking for the playground is expected to occur sometime this fall.
A chairperson on the playground committee said they hope to have a design layout at the end of the summer.
Gannon was shot and killed while serving a warrant last month.
