    An online store has opened to honor the memory of the late Massachusetts police sergeant who was killed in the line of duty earlier this year.

    The Gannon - Nero YPD Strong store opened Thursday and honors Yarmouth police Sgt. Sean Gannon as well as his dog Nero, who was injured.

    The store features an array of clothing and plush animals, including one of Nero. Proceeds from the items will be used to build the Sergeant Sean M. Gannon Police K9 Training Complex at the Yarmouth Police Department Headquarters. Proceeds from the sale of the Nero plush animals will go to the Yarmouth Police Foundation. 

    Thirty-two-year-old Gannon was shot and killed in April while he and other officers were serving an arrest warrant on career criminal Thomas Latanowich at a home in Barnstable.

    [NATL] Clerk Pulls Out Machete on Would-Be Robber

    A would-be robber armed with a knife had a surprise in store when an Alabama store clerk pulled out a machete in defense. The two's brief knife fight was caught on camera before the clerk runs out to damage the robber's car.

    According to police, suspect Seth Holcomb walked up to the counter to make a purchase. He leaves the store and then comes back in as if to make a second purchase. Then, he pulled out a knife at the counter. What he didn't expect was that the clerk would pull out a machete of his own.
