US Marshals releases its first report on shootings by officers

Associated Press

WASHINGTON (AP) — The U.S. Marshals have for the first time released data on how many people were shot by their officers or other police working with them. A total of 147 people were shot from 2019 to 2021. That’s according to the report released by the agency this week. Almost all of those happened as the federal agency tasked with fugitive searches arrested people on warrants, including for crimes like assault and homicide. The total includes shootings that killed people and those that left people injured. It comes at a time when data about police shootings remains scarce, years into a national reckoning over police brutality and racial injustice.
