USA: 462 PEOPLE SHOT DEAD BY POLICE THIS YEAR

June 30, 2015: Nationwide, police have shot and killed 462 people in the first six months of 2015, according to Washington Post data.
At least 62 people have been shot and killed by police across the United States within the past 30 days. This database is based on news reports, public records, Internet databases and original reporting. So far this year, there have been 1.4 shootings per million people nationwide. The highest state rates fall in the South and West.
The Washington Post is compiling a database of every fatal shooting in the United States by a police officer in the line of duty in 2015. The Post is tracking more than a dozen details about each killing — including the race of the deceased, the circumstances of the shooting, and whether the person was armed — by culling local news reports and monitoring independent databases, such as Killed by Police and Fatal Encounters.
In some cases, The Post conducted additional reporting. The Post is documenting only shootings in which a police officer, while on duty, shot and killed a civilian. The Post is not tracking deaths of people in custody, fatal shootings by off-duty officers, or deaths in which police gunfire did not kill the individual. Killed by police were: 439 Male, 23 Female. 387 were carrying a weapon, 17 a toy weapon, 51 were unarmed, and 7 are “unknown”. As for race, 228 were White, 121 Black, 78 Hispanic, 7 Asian, and 28 “unknown”. As for sign of mental illness, 124 had, 338 had not or “unknown”. As for age, 11 were under 18, 68 were 18 to 24, 139 were 25 to 34, 111 were 35 to 44, 80 were 45 to 54, 47 were 55 and up, and 6 were “unknown”. (Sources: The Marshall Project, 30/06/2015)
