Justifiable homicides means LEO shootings not just citizen shootings. I also
believe the figures include suicides (via firearms) as well. An interesting
aside is that this is the only category in which suicides is included.
Homicides from knives, for example, exclude suicides as does numbers for
vehicular homicides. Don't ask me why.
