INDIANAPOLIS — In photos, 3-year-old Megan Fox looks just like a baby doll, with blond hair, big blue eyes and round little cheeks just like her dad’s.
It was her face Matt Fox saw late Friday when the Fortville police officer found himself facing a man with a .45-caliber pistol seconds before the bullets started flying.
“That was going through my mind – Megan – that I would never see my daughter again,” Fox, 29, said.
The man who had just leaped from his car and opened fire was James Lockhart III, 27, of Indianapolis. Fox, a five-year veteran of the Fortville Police Department, had tried to pull him over just minutes before.
