Reported by KPBS http://www.kpbs.org/…/san-diego-officer-involved-shooting-…/

San Diego County “Officer Involved Shootings” from 1993 to 2012; 367 victims,195 died from their injuries.

According to the report, 123 had a documented mental health illness, were “exhibiting unstable behavior” or both.

“One-third had both mental health issues and under the influence of one or more drugs,” the study said.

The most common substance was meth, followed by alcohol and then marijuana.

The report identified at least 67 incidents, or 19 percent, as “suicide-by-cop”, “meaning it appeared the subject wanted police to shoot him or her.”

In 80 percent of the shootings, officers did not try to use lesser methods of force, such as a Taser or police dog, and 45 percent occurred less than one minute after the officer arrived at the scene.

****The San Diego Police Department had the MOST “officer-involved shootings” with 194 incidents****
