Funeral information has been released for Plymouth Township Police Officer Brad Fox.

Officer Fox was shot in the head and died Thursday after responding to a call of a hit-and-run. The seven year veteran of the Plymouth Township police department served two tours of duty in Iraq. He is survived by a young daughter and his wife who is expecting their second child.

On Friday night, Fox's fellow officers along with the local community showed up to honor the fallen hero at a vigil.

Police chaplain Nicholas Salios began the vigil with a prayer. He counseled Officer Fox's wife and parents at the hospital on Thursday night.

"Officers have been grieving, they feel it very deeply, they're hurting, their wives are also hurting. This is going to last for some time," said Salios.

The vigil concluded with a police flyover.

"It's shocking, surreal, sad for someone who served his country and community like he did. It's a terrible loss for both," said Steve Chamberlain, from Gilbertsville.

On Saturday, viewing and funeral details were released for Officer Fox.

A public viewing will take place Tuesday from 5 p.m. to 9 p.m. at Epiphany of Our Lord RC Church on 3050 Walton Road in Plymouth Meeting.

On Wednesday, another viewing will take place at Epiphany from 7 a.m. to 10:30 a.m. followed by a mass at 11 a.m. Officer Fox will then be buried at Washington Crossing Veterans Cemetery at 2:30 p.m.

Fox's K-9 partner "Nick" was grazed by a bullet while trying to protect his partner. Police tell NBC10 Nick continues to recover and he hopes he'll be able to attend Fox's funeral.
