Indiana officer who was simply shot in head is moved to hospice

RICHMOND, Ind. (AP) An eastern Indiana officer who was simply shot in the top throughout a traffic stop has been moved to hospice care after being removed life support at a hospital, her department said.

Richmond officer Seara Burton, 28, was used in a hospice facility in the Richmond area Saturday, the department said. She have been treated at a hospital in Dayton, Ohio, since being shot on Aug. 10.

She’ll continue receiving proper care and become surrounded by her family, the department said in a Facebook post.

Burton was removed life support Thursday.

Officer Seara Burtons injuries have already been determined to be unrecoverable, the department said Wednesday. Seara will go on and continue being a hero with her selfless gift of organ donation.

It didn’t say which organs will be donated.

Prosecutors have filed three attempted murder charges against Phillip Matthew Lee, a Richmond man accused of shooting Burton.

Lee, 47, has been held in jail on a $1.5 million bond. He pleaded not liable during a short court appearance.

Lees moped was stopped by officers Aug. 10 and Burton was called directly into help with her police dog, which indicated the possible presence of narcotics.
