The Washington Post Police shooting dataset contains records of all persons shot by an on-duty police officer from 2015 to 2023, in the United States, as well as the agencies involved in each event. It is updated regularly as fatal shootings are reported and as facts emerge about individual cases.
The Washington Post collected data on more than 52,000 criminal homicides over the past 10 years in 50 of the largest American cities. The data included the location of the homicide, whether an arrest occurred and, demographic information about the victim.
