Officer Brad Fox would have celebrated his 35th birthday on Friday. The Plymouth Township police officer was killed in the line of duty while responding to a call for a hit-and-run Thursday afternoon.
Police say Fox was shot in the head near a bike path at Conshohocken Road and Ernest Station Road in Plymouth Township, Montgomery County.
District Attorney Risa Vetri Ferman says this is the first time the Plymouth Township police department has had an officer killed in the line of duty.
Fox served two tours of duty in Iraq, according to the District Attorney. Authorities say Fox had a little girl and his wife is pregnant with their second child.
Police have confirmed that the suspect was also shot and killed.
