Description: This data set was downloaded from Fatal Encounters, a non-profit organization that is collecting data on Police Involved Deaths. This data set has been truncated to include the subject's name, age at time of death, subject's gender, subjects race, location of death, cause of death and year of death. This does not only include people shot by police, but there are also instances of police that died during fatal encounters. It is good to remind students using this data set that this is a volunteer agency collecting the data from people that are scouring news articles for evidence of these fatal encounters, thus it is not a complete population of fatal encounters, only a very, very large sample.
