The 48-year-old actor shared a photo with his 1.7 million Instagram followers on Tuesday night of him hugging 32-year-old Brett Kyle's dad as the man cried on Foxx's shoulder.
"Met the father of the young man from last night today. This is all that matters," Foxx -- who has two daughters of his own -- captioned the heartwarming image. "That a man, a son, a brother's life was spared last night. God had his arms wrapped around all of us... No heroes... Just happy fathers."
