A Plymouth Township (Pa.) Police officer, and Iraq War veteran, was fatally shot Thursday, after responding to a call of a hit-and-run driver.

Brad Fox, who would have celebrated his 35th birthday today, was shot in the head during a pursuit in the Philadelphia suburb, reports NBC News.

Officer Fox leaves behind a daughter and a wife who is expecting the couple's second child. He is believe to be the first line of duty death from the agency.

Rest in peace, brother. I wish the exact opposite for his killer!

My condolences to Officer Fox's family and department. Hopefully the scum that shot him is "bagged & tagged" Blues, stay safe.

How tragic to survive Iraq then come home and start a life and family only to be killed by a POS that now has no right to keep on using oxygen and hopefully will not be doing so much longer.

May peace and solace come soon to Officer Fox's wife, children and others he left behind in such an untimely manner not of his choosing.

I should have read the NBC News article first. It says his killer was also shot and killed. His K-9 was also shot but survived. Good work by other responding officers!

RIP Officer Brad Fox. May God watch over your family and keep them safe and strong... Glad the perp is history, it just sucks if cost a brothers life.

May the Peace of God who surpasses all understanding keep the department, family and friends with them in their time of sorrow.

This is tragic, and sad. I pray for his family, friends and loved ones. Especially to his wife and children. I'm so sorry. I hope justice is served swiftly to the person(s) involved.

I know they will,but I hope that all officers and higher ups please keep a watchful eye and please maintain a relationship with his family. Mostly with his wife and his children. They are going to need it, and it will be comforting to his wife and children to know that they got a family in blue as well.
