Indiana officer who was shot in head is moved to hospice
RICHMOND, Ind. (AP) — An eastern Indiana police officer who was shot in the head during a traffic stop has been moved to hospice care after being taken off life support at a hospital.
The Richmond Police Department says 28-year-old Officer Seara Burton was transferred to a hospice facility in the Richmond area on Saturday. She had been treated at a hospital in Dayton, Ohio, since being shot on Aug. 10.
The department says in a Facebook post that “she will continue receiving excellent care and be surrounded by her family.”
Burton was taken off life support Thursday.
A Richmond man is jailed on three attempted murder charges in the officer’s shooting.
