LAWRENCE -

Police dashboard video of a Friday night attack on a Fortville Police officer shows the suspect, 27-year-old James Lockhart III of Indianapolis, leading the officer, Matt Fox, on a chase, then shooting Fox in his police car.

Officers later cornered Lockhart in a Lawrence apartment complex, killing him with return fire after he shot at them.  Lockhart wounded an IMPD officer and a police dog in the shoot-out.

The video shows how Lockhart drove his car into a subdivision, and refused to get out as Fox ordered. After about a minute of ignoring Fox, Lockhart takes off in his white Volvo. 

Twenty-four seconds later, the video shows Lockhart getting out of the car and shooting at Fox.

By the time Lockhart got to the police car, he had fired at least four times. He then moved out of sight of Fox's dashboard camera and shot through the driver's side window at Fox.

Lockhart then runs back to his car, puts the gun in the car, and takes off again.

Fox was wearing a bullet proof vest that may have saved his life.

Fox was last listed in good condition at IU Health Methodist Hospital.  The IMPD officer and police K-9 are also expected to make full recoveries.
