At least 990 people in the US were killed by the police in 2015
This map shows the number of people shot by law enforcement in each state in 2015. With 188 fatal shots from police firearms, California ranks by far as the state with the highest number of people killed by the police. But as it is also the state with most inhabitants, it is outnumbered by nine other states – with Wyoming and New Mexico in the top – when calculated per capita.
As the US government publishes no comprehensive data of people killed by law enforcement, the map is based on data from news media and Wikipedia.
