    Shooting stats

    This might ought to be posted under training, but I have a question.

    Where can I find (Does anyone know) statistics regarding the physical distances between police and suspects in police involved shootings?

    I know that the overwhelming majority are within 7 yards, but for what I am doing, I would like to quote actual numbers.

    Thanks in advance for any help.

    Be courteous to all, but intimate with few, and let those few be well tried before you give them your confidence!

    All police shooting stats are here.

    BTW, 90% of all police shootings are within 5 feet and over in 3 seconds. And police will miss more than connect.

    Thus, we train, train, practice, and train. For an entire career.

    For those 3 seconds in our lives we hope never come.
