A Plymouth Township police officer was killed Thursday night in a confrontation with a hit-and-run suspect.
K-9 Officer Bradley Fox of Gilbertsville was shot in the head around 6:00pm near Conshohocken and Ernest Station Roads, about a half-mile from the Montgomery County Fire Academy. His dog Nick was also shot, but survived.
The shooter was shot and killed at the scene. Fox was a seven-year veteran of the Plymouth Township Police Department and a Marine Corps veteran who served two tours in Iraq. He died one day short of his 35th birthday, he is survived by his wife and daughter, and his wife is pregnant with a second child.
