Richmond, Indiana, police chief Mike Britt says officer Seara Burton is “fighting for her life” after being shot during a traffic stop Wednesday around 6:30 p.m.
FOX News quoted Britt saying, “My officer is in very critical condition, fighting for her life. Those of you who pray I ask that you pray for her because she could use it.”
Burton, a K-9 officer, has been with the Richmond police department for four years. She was walking her dog around a moped on a narcotics sniff when the driver of the moped, 47-year-old Phillip M. Lee, allegedly pulled a gun and opened fire.
Other officers on scene returned fire and Lee “fled on foot.”
