not many understand what officers do everyday to protect the public. if not him getting shot at maybe someone who wouldnt know what to do. my prayers go out to him and his family.

Our police officers are out everyday protecting us from these jerks, we all need to thank our law enforcement everyday.

I was just wondering why a POS with that kind of record was running around loose in the first place? Our broken criminal justice system? Responding back up officers did a good job and the end result was excellent. Glad to know Officer Fox is expected to recover. All ya'll stay safe.

It ended as one would hope. May the officers have quick and full recoveries.

Lowlife got what he deserved...

Obviously, what we need is more gun laws by Liberal politicians, since this douche-bag ignored the current laws. Seems he had a much larger arsenal than I, even though he is a convicted felon. Yessiree Bob, more gun laws will stop these folks!

God be with you and your family. You Sir are a true Hero! God bless you and your family.

SUSPECT! Stop with the PC, please. He's only a suspect to a judge and a jury. To the police and the prosecutor he's an OFFENDER.

This is the reason why we pay these heroes such low wages and when they retire we take their benefits from them to balance our government budgets. I'm all for paying basketball players who live and promote gangster life styles millions! Where's our priorities!! God Bless Officer FOX

@ Dan Marshall, SUSPECT is the right terminology for this POS. To the judge and the jury, it's called the "DEFENDANT." Get it right.

May the perp burn in hell.

Lockhart was finally shot, but not enough times. Whoever did shoot him could have delivered a few more rounds in that direction; it would have been justified, and perhaps hastened his demise thereby saving money for the taxpayers.

The suspect was a coward plain and simple...if you want to go out in a hale of bullets then shoot yourself that's all!!!

So lucky this guy did not double tap him. Suspect was one stone cold killer.
