The four-year veteran of the department in Richmond was critically wounded in the Aug. 10 shooting.
She was moved to hospice care, two days after she was removed from life support on Sept. 1 at a hospital in Dayton, Ohio.
Authorities have said officers stopped Lee and called Burton to assist with her police dog.
Court documents say that while officers were speaking with the rider, he pulled out a gun and opened fire toward the officers, shooting Burton.
Other officers returned fire and he ran away.
